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.
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/
I am travelling to the ashram in June/ July 2020 to accompany participants in the 10 Days of Yoga Journey (July 9 – 20th), and am more than happy to help people with their travel arrangements and answer any questions that they may have).
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 so that others can experience these transformational practices.”
