Hañsa Therapy

A methodology and a guided approach that leads us to inquire further in the challenges of maintaining normal functional and dealing with the many aspects of the human condition. Hañsa Therapy combines both Western and Eastern principles and methodologies from developmental movement principles to applied biomechanics and specific protocols of postural assessment.

From our Participants

Learning about Hañsa had entirely changed the way I think about yoga asana practice and also inspired some beautiful understandings of life, as well as depended and consolidated some on the world views I have already fostered through other resonant modalities.


Participant in Principles of Flow Training

Excellent. So good to hear Vincent using words to help us make everyday sense of our yoga connection with our geometrical shapes and physical space, our breathing and finally visualisation to seal the deal.


Participant in Hañsa Therapy Class with Vincent

It was amazing. I knew my T12-L1 connection wasn’t good. But when the class almost finish, I can feel something different in my body. Especially in T12-L1 area. Nice sequence. Love it

The meaning of hañsa yoga

hañsa(हंस)means the swan in sanskrit. The swan represents the liberated ātman (soul).

hañsa yoga is a healing process of self awakening through the practice and observation of human behavioural patterns. Using this as the basis of gaining greater insight to individual function as well as understanding ones physical, mental and energetic needs.

Exploring the subtle aspects of our breath and the hidden language that resides within it we will discover the artistry of internal flow and form. Through the integration of both eastern and western philosophy and methodologies we will unravel and engage our unique stories in a way that will evoke a postural evolution that will only enhance skill, grace and poise on all levels.

Other meanings

The swan symbolizes grace and beauty on many levels. It is associated with love, music, and poetry. In Roman mythology Swan was sacred to Venus, the goddess of love. In Greek tradition, this bird was often pictured singing to a lyre.
