‘Sampoorna’ is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘full’, ‘total’, or ‘absolute’. This totality is reflected in Sampoorna Yoga School’s respect for all traditions of yoga and acceptance of students of all traditions and lineages from all over the world. Our philosophy is that yoga is more than just exercise or the practice of postures. At Sampoorna we aim to promote yoga in its ‘fullness’, encompassing all 8 limbs of Ashtanga Yoga equally and not just focusing solely on the 3rd limb of Ashtanga yoga, i.e. asana practice.
