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.

The atmosphere of a class is quiet and self-directed. The instructor offers principles – such as spinal awareness, moving with the breath, relaxing in the movements, and observing physical, mental and emotional responses – but you are given responsibility for your own self and your own insights. Students take time between asanas to write down observations. At the end of class there is a deep relaxation, then the class gathers together to share their reflections. Wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a journal.

JaneCatherine Aldiss started practicing hatha yoga in 1991 and started teaching yoga in 1999. She has studied with internationally recognized teachers around the world.

JaneCatherine is a Yasodhara Yoga Teacher, as well as a Senior Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance UK as well as a CPD teacher for the British Wheel of Yoga. She 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 European community both in person and on line, so that others can experience these transformational practices.”

I was inspired to take up yoga aged 21 by my parents whilst living in France. Seven years later, in 2005, I first stayed at Yasodhara Ashram during a gap year in Canada. I returned to participate in the 2008 Yoga Development Course, remaining at the ashram for most of 2008 and 2009, undertaking karma yoga and completing my teacher certification.

I return to the ashram every 3-4 years to refresh my experience and connection, and am supported on a regular basis by a network of fellow yogis stretching from Vancouver Island to Nagano. I have previously been on the Radha House Association board, including in the role of President.

I currently lead a fortnightly book group as well as initiating the weekly Divine Light Invocation practice group, both sessions being online.

More information on these can be found on the “online classes and satsangs” page of this site: yasodharayoga.org/europe/classes-satsangs/

I have also been responsible for organising YYEN’s first online retreats: yasodharayoga.org/europe/online-classes/

Still Mind, Peaceful Heart – January 2023
“Nourishing ourselves on the inside of our very being helps us cope with the complexities and uncertainties of life. How can you make the best of your life…, especially in uncertain times?” Swami Sivananda Radha
Connecting with the wisdom of the mind and find peace of heart through reflection, hatha yoga, breath, meditation and relaxation in this two hour class.




Coming Back to Harmony  – October 2022

Harmony comes when the elements are beautifully blended together.

How can you encourage your mind and body to relax and open to a quiet inner self? Quietness and stillness bring perspective and clarity to what you can realise and what you want to draw in.

Learning to understand the ground of the body, the ground of the mind and the ground of the heart can bring about the realisation of how everything is always there for us at any time, in any place,

In this workshop  we explored the possibilities  harmony has to offer, through asanas, reflection, breath, relaxation and Light.
