Yoga is the science of activating your inner energies to such a vibrant and exuberant state that your body, mind, and emotions function at their highest peaks.
— Sadhguru


AnaHatha offers classical Hatha Yoga, derived from a yogic tradition maintained in its full purity and vibrancy for thousands of years, which is a phenomenally powerful science. It is a system that is precisely and meticulously put together as a means of reaching higher dimensions.

The Hatha Yoga practices have been designed to develop mental clarity and focus, boost vigor and vitality, balance hormonal levels and take years off the body, bringing a sense of lightness and freedom.

Hatha Yoga is imparted not as a physical exercise, but in its full depth and dimension, enabling a person in the most fundamental way, to flower into their ultimate potential.

Currently we offer classes in Nyack, NY (USA) and Cologne (Germany).

What we refer to as Yoga is a technology to make your energies function by choice and not by compulsion or fixed patterns.
— Sadhguru
All practices are taught in such a way, that once all sessions are completed you will be able to continue practicing on your own. In case there are still doubts after the last session, we will support you and clarify, to make sure you are doing the practices correctly.

Surya Kriya

Surya Kriya activates the solar plexus to raise the samat prana in the system. It also balances a person’s energy channels, leading to stability of the body and stillness of the mind.


A fitness system rooted in yoga, offers everyone the opportunity to invigorate the body and reach peak physical and mental health, gaining complete mastery over the limbs, organs, and other parts of the body.


Yogasanas are very subtle processes to manipulate one’s energy in a particular direction. This profound science enables a person to flower into their ultimate potential; to achieve a state of health, joy, bliss.

Bhuta Shuddhi

Bhuta Shuddhi means 'purification of the elements'. The wellbeing of the body and mind can be established by purifying these five elements within the human system.

Upa Yoga

Upa Yoga is a simple yet powerful set of 10 practices that activate the joints, muscles and energy system. Upa Yoga dispels inertia in the body’s energy and brings ease to the whole system.

Surya Shakti

'Surya' means 'sun,' and 'shakti' means 'energy.' Surya Shakti is a complete process. If you can do 108 Surya Shaktis daily, you will not only be physically fit, but in a different energy state altogether.


Yoga for brain stimulation. Thoppukarnam balances the right and left sides of the brain, and at the same time exercises the body.

Pranic Food

The way you eat not only decides your physical health – it decides the very way you think, feel and experience life.


When you are identified as the body, your whole perspective of life will be about survival. Meditation is a way of moving into the unlimited dimension of who you are.

Custom Programs

We offer customized programs and a combination of various practices, depending on your needs. All our offerings have certain health benefits; we can explore a suitable program for individuals or a group.

Yoga essentially means that in search of wellbeing, you do not look up, you do not look out – you look inward.

The Teacher

Namaskaram, my name is Polina. I've attended my first yoga class in 2015. At that time I was practicing and shortly thereafter also teaching Vinyasa Yoga in New York.

One day I discovered a video of Sadhguru talking about life, spirituality and yoga. Listening to his wisdom was like hearing something I once knew but had forgotten. Sadhguru seemed to have the most logical and profound answers, his perspective would always be surprising.

And so it happened that after an injury, I was not able to practice Vinyasa. In an attempt to keep at least some simple form of yoga in my life, I have started the free practices which are available on the Sadhguru App. After just the first time practicing the most simple practices I have experienced a state of calm, centered, balanced and focused, like never before. I asked myself if those simple practices are so powerful, what would the advanced practices do?

Sure enough I started learning all available practices one after another and each practice was different from the other and attended to different aspects. But above all, I started experiencing a very high amount of energy and vibrance, and I knew this was what yoga was supposed to feel like.

Eager to bring this experience to everyone else, I attended the Isha Hatha Yoga Teacher Training at the Isha Yoga Center in Coimbatore, India in 2021. The intense 5-month (1750 hrs) training, with 7 hrs of physical practice daily, was designed by Sadhguru to offer classical Hatha Yoga in its purest form to the world. The training was designed in very detail to help us not just learn and imbibe the material and the practices; but to transform during these 5 months. Experiencing this transformation, the beautiful and supporting lifestyle of the ashram, as well as countless realizations about my existence on this planet, fuels my desire to offer classical Hatha Yoga.

Today I am happy to be able to offer Sadhguru's teachings in New York, USA, as well as in my home town, Cologne, Germany.


"I took the Surya Kriya class. It is amazing how thorough Polina's instructions are.

I was able to learn and incorporate the Kriya into my practice the next day after completing the course."

"I learned Bhuta Shuddhi from Polina and I am very grateful for that. Just her gentle presence has humbled me. With much calmness and grace, she patiently teaches this beautiful and connecting procedure.

I recommend everyone to take a class with her. Thank you very much, Polina!"

"Polina has been a great teacher for me. I have learned Surya Kriya and asked a loooot of questions just about anything. She took her time and answered them patiently. Her teaching is very diligent and accurate and of great value. I would always reach out for her if I wanted to learn a new kriya or asanas. Very good Hatha Yoga teacher."
