What is Lady Niguma Yoga?
Lady Niguma yoga is a special left handed lineage created by a woman that predates the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. The series combines inner and outer methods to achieve yoga or union of body/mind, normal/divine, left/right body. It utilizes a system of twisting, gathering, stretching and dispersing the subtle winds in channels called Nadis. We begin at the root chakra and work our way up to the crown in order to create an opening or untying of the knots(chakras) for a mental, emotional, and physical release.

Vimala Sperber (b. Buffalo, NY) has been practicing yoga since she first moved to New York City in 1989. As a gallery owner in Soho (NYC) she eventually moved to a spiritual lifestyle and started studying and hosting Niguma yoga classes on her roof. She studied 18 Buddhist philosophy courses that cover the 5 great books of India (the equivalent of a doctorate in the states) and went on to complete a three year silent solo meditation retreat where she meditated and did yoga everyday. Vimala completed her 200 hour Teacher training in Sedona after this retreat and has taught locally for resorts, online for The Yoga Studies Institute, and privately as well. Vimala also works for the Asian Legacy Library as head of Special Projects, where she has located Sanskrit manuscripts in India, started a center in Kathmandu, Nepal and is dedicated to preserving wisdom for the world.
