    “The tradition of Himalaya Yoga and Meditation by Swami Rama follows the line of teachings from ancient yoga masters, infused with scientific methods. The Himalayan tradition is a pure yoga meditation method that does not follow a certain system of beliefs. Yoga training in the Himalayan tradition teaches students to sit in the correct posture, relax fully, and breathe properly. The program teaches students to purify thoughts and emotions for meditation, in addition to providing a systematic instruction for watching breathing, which integrates into all of the classes.” – from the brochure describing this event.
