Hanthawaddy Yoga Workshop

Hanthawaddy Yoga Workshop

The seminar will start on September 14th at 2pm and finish at 2pm on September 16th

At Smokerise Ranch in Glouster, Ohio.

$75 for ABA members and $100 for non ABA members. 

Hanthawaddy Yoga has a unique pattern of breath combined with the specific motion of the body as it flows from posture to posture. This yoga system is an important part of the Bando system and was instructed by Dr. Maung Gyi to a few practitioners from 1978 into the 1990's, and this workshop is being presented with Dr. Gyi's blessings. Practicing yoga forms like Hanthawaddy generates so much internal energy that the mind needs time to recognize and process these currents.
