is a sanskrit word meaning “a way", "a means", "an effort” to achieve a purpose.
Our mission is to provide our students with a ”means” to seek within themselves, for the one who seeks within is never left without.
Our yoga practice has a holistic approach to the overall wellbeing of our students. While asanas help in the physical aspect, pranayama helps in controlling the mind through systematic breathing. Our guided meditation takes one through the journey of calming the mind and connecting with one’s higher level of consciousness. We add a wee bit of jnana, the knowledge that keeps one pondering. The answers for which lie within, like the ember in the ashes!
Upaaya is founded on the principles of karma yoga. We strive for excellence in our actions while being detached to it - Yoga Karmasu Kaushalam.
Our vision is to generate resources through our teachings and make a difference in the lives of the less privileged. Your contribution provides the Upaaya for someone in need.
yoga-sthah kuru karmani sangam tyaktva dhananjaya
siddhy-asiddhyoh samo bhutva samatvam yoga ucyate
Be steadfast in yoga, O Arjuna. Perform your duty and abandon all attachment to success or failure. Such evenness of mind is called yoga.
