Ezgi has studied with various scholars over the years. Her main philosophy teacher is Prof. Paul Muller Ortega, founder of Blue Throat Yoga, a school of deep meditation practice and advanced studies of Hindu Shaiva Tantra. Ezgi is an authorized teacher of that school. Our central philosophy teachings are mainly coming from this lineage. Rooted in our central lineage, we honor various other lineages of yoga philosophy and teach them in our school as well.

Asana - Physical Practice
Our teachings on the physical practice of yoga, hatha yoga, is Alignment-based Flow. We focus highly on the alignment that best serves the body and beyond.
