Traditional Hatha Yoga with a Modern Twist
Soma™ Yoga celebrates the tantric view that the body is to be celebrated and used as a vehicle towards liberation, not shunned as an obstacle that hinders our spiritual journey, as was the view in all other Indian darshana (world views).
Soma was the elixir of the Gods and dates back to the earliest brahminical scripture, namely the Rig Veda around 1500BCE. It was used in rituals to the Gods by the priests and as we can see below, it was most certainly consumed by humans in the hope of immortality.
Additionally the word “Soma” in western civilization relates to the “body” coming from the greek word for body. The word has in modern times been incorporated into “Somatics”, which is a field within bodywork and movement studies which emphasizes internal physical perception and experience.
Hence the combination of these two definitions ties into the concept of traditional yoga with a modern twist, which lies at the heart of Soma Yoga .
