Hidden Language Hatha Yoga
Hidden Language Hatha Yoga takes the practice of Hatha Yoga far beyond a series of physical exercises. It is a gentle and meditative style of Hatha that respects the body as a spiritual tool. By working with metaphor, symbolism, imagery and visualization, the ‘hidden’ messages of each asana are revealed.
Hidden Language starts with the very personal – your observations, your mind, your body, your relationship to the world. And it expands out to the universal, to the mythologies of our cultures, to the subtle force sustaining all life. The asanas are practiced not only for their physical benefits, but also to understand the psychological and symbolic meanings, to demonstrate how each asana can increase spiritual awareness. For those accustomed to physically intense or rigorous Hatha traditions, Hidden Language will be a change of pace, a chance to go deeper into the body and the mystical potential of each asana.

Jane Aldiss started practicing hatha yoga in 1991 and started teaching yoga in 1999. She has studied with internationally recognized teachers around the world, including Angela Farmer, who introduced her to the power of ‘The Feminine Unfolding’ within the practice.
Jane is a Yasodhara Yoga Teacher, as well as a Senior Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance UK and teaches The Hidden Language of Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Dream Yoga workshops in the Yasodhara Yoga tradition.
“I discovered one of Swami Radha’s books in the local library (In the Company of the Wise) in May 2015, and by the time I was half way through, knew that I had to go to Yasodhara Ashram to do the three month Yoga Development Course, which I attended in 2016. I returned to the UK after a five month stay. I went back to the ashram in 2017 for the Dream and Kundalini Training, in 2018 for the Hidden Language of Hatha Yoga Training, and in October 2019 took four of my friends and students to the ashram, three of whom participated in the 10 Days of Yoga Journey https://www.yasodhara.org/study/10-day-yoga-journey/ and one, in the One Month Karma Yoga Programme https://www.yasodhara.org/karma-yoga/one-month-introduction/
The Yasodhara teachings have changed my life in extraordinary ways, and continue to do so. I am deeply committed to bringing them forward in my community both in person and on line, so that others can experience these transformational practices.”

Dream Yoga Workshop Saturday 30th May
This inward and reflective lockdown period has given some the time to connect more deeply with their dreams, and a request has come forward for dream workshops, so the next Saturday reflection class will be a dream workshop. We will take two hours to explore a dream and see what the hidden messages are for you.
“Our dreams are our own creations, and as we study them we learn our personal language of the unconscious.” Swami Sivananda Radha
Exploring dreams helps us to learn the personal language of our own subconscious dreaming mind, and as we study them they can reveal its messages.
The dreaming mind speaks to us in symbols. There can be no generalization about symbols because we each develop our own symbolic language. Once we begin to understand its language, our dreaming mind can become our best friend and teacher, our own inner Guru.
Finding Balance on line reflection class 2nd May 20.
The ‘Finding Balance’ on line reflection class was very special.

We connected from all over Europe, from Norwich to London and Lowestoft, and Sweden, Denmark, France and Spain!
