What is spirituality

Spirituality is in its essence a huge energy that contains infinite love, wisdom about everyone and everything, ultimate peace and freedom. Everyone and everything is a part of that huge energy. Spirituality is about to walk the path back within yourselves to rediscover that energy - to find the origins of balance and love within your hearts. That huge energy has been throughout the centuries named in many ways such as the universal power, the universe, the universal energy, the light, the source, the God energy, or simply God. The essence of all the religions are based on the truth of that energy. The problem of the world today is that the truth has been misused and then mislead people into a false believe system. Tanya and Michael offers their knowledge to help the world and humanity to find back to the universal power, source, or God within your hearts.

Spiritual yoga with Tanya

In Tanya's yoga teaching, the goal is to help and guide you to reach higher levels of consciousness. The essence of the yoga philosophy will be passed to you - how to walk the spiritual path and use yoga and meditation as a tool for this.
