Shamanism is a broad term that refers to nature-based spiritual practices intended for healing and accessing spiritual knowledge and power.
Hatha yoga, in its original intent and form, is a shamanic practice.
For this reason, yoga perfectly complements other shamanic practices like journeying with a drum, rattle, or sacred plants, to connect with power animals, soul guides, and nature spirits.
Hatha vinyasa yoga combines movement, conscious breathing and mindfulness to achieve integration and harmony between mind and body, and cultivate a state of deep inner awareness, sensitivity and receptivity.
