Heather Elton

Welcome to my website. I am a yogini, yoga teacher, photographer and part-time writer living in London. My yogic path has taken me to sacred places in India and Nepal in pursuit of a ‘real’ yoga – an authentic traditional yoga merging Hindu and Buddhist Tantra. This pilgrimage has taken me to sacred sites and into the hearts of spiritual masters and awakened beings. I try to share my knowledge through my teaching and writing.

I’ve taught Astanga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga in London for the past 14 years. These days I prefer a slow mindful alignment-based vinyasa flow that integrates yoga philosophy into the practice. My approach is a deep physical and psychological practice that moves beyond the gross physical body to make the spiritual yogic inquiry authentic and relevant to real life. The ultimate aim of yoga is love, liberation and freedom. Moksha.

Please join me on an international yoga retreat or workshop or 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training courses in London, Goa and Nepal. The innovative Yoga Adventure in Nepal takes you to sacred sites and teaches yoga philosophy ‘On the Road’ within the cultural context of living Tantra.

2016 LONDON YOGA WORKSHOPS

We produce an annual program of interdisciplinary Yoga Workshops with master teachers in London. These are the 2016 workshops. 2017 Workshops to be announced soon.

My intention is to inspire people to empower and heal themselves, release hardness and soften the body,

focus the mind and cultivate inner peace, and to take this knowledge off the mat and into your life,

so you can walk the earth with ease and grace.

dar·shan

ˈdärˌSHän,-SHən/Y

The act of seeing and being seen. Viewpoint.

You might wonder what all the eyes are about on the website? They are the eyes of deities that I’ve had Darshan with during my spiritual path. Ultimately, these deities reveal your own inner essence to yourself. Your true Buddha Nature.

Darshan means GAZE, as suggested by its Sanskrit root, Drik, to see, but it is to see differently, to see and meet at the same time, having seen and known having seen, and feeling blessed to have been there, sensing a positive and beneficial inspiration from it. Darshan of a saint or sage, or an idol, a sacred object, a striking view, a mountain, a tree a light, the sweetness of the moment, a truth, – these sights transport us and reveal something else, something pertaining to interiority. A Darshan is an opportunity to face the Real. To be present. Free from the past (which no longer exists) and of the future (which is not there.)

The ultimate Darshan occurs when the veil of duality dissolves in the non- dual state of yoga –

samadhi, nirvana, moksha, pure vision, shunyata, dharmakaya.
