The teachings of the Ghatastha Yoga Method, as conceived by Duncan Ewing (aka Prahlad) and principals of The Yoga Arts Academy have been devised based on the ancient teachings contained in the Classic Hatha Yoga text, Gheranda Samhita.  

The different techniques, processes and protocol used in the practice forms of the Ghatastha Yoga Method have been carefully arranged to bring harmony to the body/mind.  Great attention is given to the ancient Hatha Yoga science of inception of Prana with inhalation of breath and release of contraction, negativity and tension with exhalation of breathe.
