'Ghatastha Yoga Is Conscious Exercise For Health, Longevity, Fitness And Ultimate Freedom In The Body And Mind'
YOGA ARTS ACADEMY PRESENTS
The Yoga Arts Academy has been sharing the teachings of Ghatastha Yoga since its establishment in Melbourne in 1998.
Ghatastha Yoga is a flowing form of Yoga comprised of techniques for transforming the subtle essences of the body and developing greater etheric energy conductivity.
Ghatastha Yoga aims to achieve the maximum results with minimal expenditure of energy. The different asana used in the many grades of Ghatastha Yoga have been arranged to bring a rich supply of blood to the brain and the various parts of the spinal column. Asana work by stretching, bending and twisting the spinal column in all possible directions. This promotes the health of the nerves extending from the vertebra to the internal organs, limbs and extremities.
Historically Ghatastha Yoga has been used as a synonymous term for Hatha Yoga. The process of Ghatastha Yoga performed as a meditation in action brings a mastery of the mechanism of the body/mind and increases conscious conductivity for participation in the spiritual process of yoga.
At the Yoga Arts Academy we specialise in Personal Tuition and classical Yoga training, we also offer courses, workshops in all the disciplines of Ghatastha Yoga.
- Yoga Arts Academy specialises in personal tuition for rehabilitation from inury or illness. This is the traditional healing application of 'Cikitsa Krama Yoga' to bring about purification, rebalancing and regeneration of the body and mind.
- We teach traditional 'Sakti Krama Yoga' via the graded fixed forms of Ghatastha Yoga. These sequences have been designed to help you get flexible, stronger and lighter in the body utilising the countless techniques of Ghatastha Yoga. For all ages!
- We are dedicated to teaching a complete, traditional and effective Yoga practice that includes classical stances and standing poses, forward bends, deep back bends, traditional inverted poses and Pranayama (breathing exercises) for expansion and conductivity of the vital life energy, Prana.
- Meditation is a part of every Ghatastha Yoga practice. We teach movement meditation and conductivity of prana for purification of the body, nervous system and the endocrine system.

"Prahlad rocks as a teacher. His extensive yogic knowledge, coupled with a deep anatomical understanding of how the body works makes him one of the best teachers in Melbourne. The two years that I have spent under his tutelage has seen not only my postures expand, but also a massive change in attitude as to how I approach my yoga practice and life in general. Without the support of Prahlad and the staff at Yoga Arts, I would not have coped so well with the amount of personal stressors that I had to deal with in life last year (and they were huge). Not only has my body opened, but also my mind and this has brought about enormous life affirming changes for me."
Leonie Lockwood, Yoga instructor and massage therapist
"Some 13 years ago I took the practical step with my Acharya Prahlad! My world wouldn't be same without the depths of his insightful teachings. Let me say this - Prahlad is the only teacher that teachers the tradition way, and when I say only I mean ONLY! The light is on."
Dhali Sandwidth, Yoga teacher and graduate of 3-year Yoga Arts Academy apprenticeship
"My world has totally changed since first walking through the doors of Yoga Arts Academy in 2008. At 32, I was unable to walk/use stairs without intense pain in both knees, seeing multiple sports docs and doing weekly physio & pilates to no avail. They all told me it was just the way it was going to be and expect it to get worse. I never got into this style of yoga thinking they would get better, or that they even could. But as a by-product of perseverance, patience & trust in what Prahlad has to offer, they did. They no longer are an issue and it absolutely fascinates me to this day. The depth of Prahlad's knowledge, experience & teachings is profound. It is something that cannot be adequately explained - it really needs to be experienced!"
