Nadi Yoga is the term used to describe the tools and processes cultivated and developed by Matt Huish over the period of his 25 plus years of practice. The Nadis are the "flow corridors" or subtle channels of the body. Nadi Yoga works to allow you to follow the internal guidance of our sensory and action organs back to the base level of sensation, which is rooted in our authentic self. Nadi Yoga utilizes many tools in addition to the classical mudras, such as powerful breath techniques and classical asana formats, done both in the style of tapasic held positions as well as dynamic moving forms. These tools help us to discover the pathways in our life’s expression that are blocked or stuck, helping us to free up bound energy and come into alignment with our authentic expression.
