The Vajra Yoga Mission

Working with Vajrayana practices and Hatha yoga, we aim to support His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s 4th aim to bring back the Indian Inner Sciences, “Adhyatma Vidya”  and the teachings of yoga & Buddhism back to India supporting human beings’ inner awakening for happiness & freedom.

Tibetan Yoga & Breathing

This unique yoga alliance certification program includes the exploration of the once secret yoga practices of Vajrayana Buddhism. It is an introductory course to inspire students to keep studying with the great lineage masters we open a doorway to. But it also gifts you some basic life changing practices you can continue to practice and share.

Alignment Based Yoga

Michele Loew not only teaches applied structural alignment and therapeutic techniques to yoga asana, but is masterful at the subtle body alignment with a goal of transforming the body into a Vajra Body of indestructible love as a portal to awakening to the luminous nature of mind. Improve the health of your physical body, & or seek ultimate freedom.
