The Himalayan Institute (UK) aims to help individuals lead a happier, more natural life and so discover how to evolve spiritually. HI (UK) offers courses and retreats on hatha yoga, breathing & relaxation, meditation and practical philosophy.
The eastern teachings about Karma (action) suggest that events only become stressful because of how we perceive & react to them. Karma Yoga (Yoga of action) teaches how the apparent stress of daily life may be reduced by calming the mind and acting wisely.
