    Are you looking for tangible holistic transformation instead of just a physical workout?

    Hridaya yoga is classical Hatha yoga and meditation as practiced a thousand years ago. The courses are designed as transformative journeys for soul, mind, and body that leave you elevated and inspired to live your life in this world to the fullest. The course is suitable for beginners, intermediate, and advanced students who want to learn the traditional approach and deepen their background knowledge of yoga.

    In the west, yoga is often taught as a kind of exercise benefiting health and wellness. Yet in India, yoga has developed over thousands of years as a science of consciousness and system of profound knowledge, not only of the body but concerning the mind and the relationship between your individual microcosm and the macrocosm of the universe as a whole.

    This is well-illustrated in the word "yoga" itself, meaning "union", individual and the universe are ultimately one and the same, which is not a dogma but can be experienced first-hand by anyone willing to "surf the wave" and open up towards inner strength and natural balance through the deepening of your awareness.

    In its own way, Hridaya yoga is similar to Yin yoga, Anusara yoga, and Agama yoga, featuring an inspiring series of yogic lectures, an attitude of surrender rather than pushing, and a dedicated focus on the heart. The Sanskrit word "Hridaya" signifies the spiritual heart, recognized as your ultimate identity beyond appearances as described by numerous sages and traditions through the centuries. The practice focuses on revealing the self as the supreme reality, leading the aspirant through states of increasing joy, bliss, and deep understanding towards pure awareness.

    Some of the main topics:

    • The concepts and philosophy of yoga and spirituality
    • The different types of yoga, Hatha yoga, Karma yoga, Bhakti yoga, Jnana yoga, Raja yoga, Kundalini yoga, etc.
    • The different stages of yogic practice all the way to liberation (Sanskrit: "moksha" or "kaivalya")
    • Concepts and practice of meditation, stillness, surrender, oneness facilitated by a variety of meditation techniques
    • Purification techniques, holistic health and nutrition
    • Yoga Nidra: the yoga of sleep and lucid dreaming
    • Tantra: the yoga of cultivating your sexual energy
    • Efficient ways to integrate spirituality into your everyday lives


    You will be certified with "Practitioner of Yoga" certification on successful completion of the course.

      Kilian Huebinger has fervently studied and taught yoga for over seven years.

    This retreat will take place in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. It is located just outside San Marcos La Laguna, the yoga capital of Central America.

However, there are not many mosquitos at all and there are no dangerous diseases, insects, or other animals around.
