Yoga term of the week: Laya Yoga

Welcome to our weekly series dedicated to helping you navigate the confusing lingo of yoga. Beginner or not, this ‘yoga dictionary’ will be here every Tuesday to quench your curiosity about a new, bizarre yogi word.

This week’s term:

Laya Yoga

 Laya yoga is simply an advanced form of tantric yoga (which can be found in our yoga dictionary) where the energy in your chakras gradually dissolves.

Once you feel like taking your yoga practice and learning beyond the studio (say, to a beach), check out some yoga holidays and retreats and indulge your inner yogini/yogi.
