Many people want big experiences but they are not willing to transform their body to be able to conduct those experiences. In yoga, you don’t chase an experience, you only prepare.
— Sadhguru


Angamardana, a fitness system rooted in yoga, offers everyone the opportunity to invigorate the body and reach peak physical and mental health. “Angamardana” means gaining complete mastery over the limbs, organs, and other parts of the body. True to its name, this practice revitalizes the body on all levels including the muscles, circulatory system, skeletal structure, nervous system, and the basic energy system.

Angamardana is a unique system of yoga which is almost completely lost these days. Traditionally in classical yoga, Angamardana was always alive. It is a very intense exercise where you don’t need any equipment. You are just using your body and building a completely different level of physical strength and tenacity.

In Angamardana, you use your own body weight and momentum to increase the flexibility of the muscle over a period of time. It is just a twenty-five minute process as it is being taught today by us, and in terms of health and wellbeing it can do miracles. It is a phenomenal process and is so complete. All you need is a six-by-six space; your body is everything. So, wherever you are you can do it. It is as effective in building the body as any weight training is, and it does not create any unnecessary stress on the system.

Even if you just look at it as an exercise form, Angamardana will definitely pass the test. But strengthening the muscle and bringing fat levels down are just fringe benefits. The important thing about whatever sadhana you are doing, whether it is Angamardana or anything else, is that we are trying to work up the energy system to a certain level of energy and integrity of energy. The thing is to get yourself into a state where you have a fully functioning system, because only if it is fully functioning can it be taken to heightened levels of perception. A half-a-body or a half-a-being cannot be taken to a full level of perception.

"Angamardana is the fourth practice I have learned with Polina. Angamardana is physically challenging for every muscle group in the body. As a personal trainer, I recognized immediately that my body was adapting to the flexibility and strength challenges associated with the Angamardana practice. I have been practicing for about two months and continually observe improvements in flexibility, strength, and muscle endurance. During the first month, I experienced soreness in my hamstrings and glutes related to significant strength improvements.

Another result of Angamardana relates to a shoulder labrum tear injury I sustained over ten years ago. I had to modify shoulder positions in Angamardana, and I was sure there was no way I could come close to the ideal position for the 6th hand posture. However, now I am able to fully get into the 6th hand posture. I highly recommend learning these practices, and I highly recommend letting Polina lead you through these sessions."

"Angamardana is a whole body workout of another level. It might be challenging at first if one is not trained, but it will get better with time. Angamardana works every body part in terms of stretching, strength and energy. The practice really requires some effort, but when you finally lay down in savasana, it's all worth it; it feels relaxed and peaceful. One feels energetic and calm at the same time, but also very meditative. In the beginning it took me approximately 50 min to complete the practice and over time I was able to decrease the time to 35 min by increasing my speed. After the practice the mind stays sharp the whole day and one just feels good in the body. It's a rejuvenating practice."
