This is a holistic course that creates the conditions for the revelation of our real nature, the spiritual heart. It is a life-changing journey in which important yoga topics are introduced in both a practical and theoretical way.
The practice of Hatha Yoga provides an intimate inner knowledge of the physical body, bio-energies, and chakras (energy centers), as well as of our ultimate nature. A contemplative attitude and an awareness of the Spiritual Heart is an important part of the practice.

Antoaneta Maria Gotea was born in July 1972, in Bucharest, Romania. The memories from her early age about her father practicing complicated physical exercises (known in yoga as uddiyana bandha) and unusual breathing (pranayama) synergistically connected with her mother’s teachings about the existence of subtle bodies and reincarnation and this blossomed later in a genuine spiritual aspiration. Her search for an authentic spiritual path led her at the age of 21 to a yoga course while she was a student at Politechnical University in Bucharest. She studied Raja Yoga and Mahavidya Yoga.
Arnaud Philibert is a senior yoga and meditation teacher. As a child, he was passionate about history and spirituality. That led him to walk the Camino of Santiago in Spain and to explore ancient and sacred places in both Europe and Asia. After an intense period of sadhana in Tantra Yoga and Vajrayana (Tibetan Buddhism), he met Sahajananda in 2007 and started a series of Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreats with him. He lives with his family close to Longeval.
When Alison first came to yoga for its health benefits in 2010, she had no idea that the profound spiritual path unfolding before her would become her life’s calling! Alison’s path led her to schools and teachers in India, Thailand, Canada, and Mexico, where she explored the deep reality that yoga and meditation point us to. When Alison found Hridaya Yoga, she knew she had found a true gem in this community where the authentic teachings of yoga are shared. Under the guidance of her teacher Sahajananda, she continues to dive more deeply into the teachings of Non-Duality and to open her heart.
