The Higher Self Is Our Greatest Potential...

Our Higher Self is the wise being within all of us. It is a calm, loving, and spiritual guide that brings our positive characteristics to the surface and tasks us with questioning our lower nature. When we live in alignment with the inner wisdom of our Higher Selves, we become the best possible version of ourselves. Our Higher Self knows our purpose in life, and encompasses our potential to live a fulfilling and joyous life through personal growth and self-awareness.

“The Higher Self is the most powerful instrument there is, and like any other instrument, you need to learn how to use it. By living in alignment with your Higher Self, you will transform into who you are supposed to become as you realize the essence of your being.”

– Nanette V. Hucknall
Founder of Higher Self Yoga

What is Higher Self Yoga?

Higher Self Yoga introduces you to Yoga in its original sense, not as a physical practice, but as a spiritual practice that connects you to Source through your Higher Self. While the practice can be spiritual in nature, the applications of the wisdom discovered through the Higher Self have enormous practical benefits. By applying this wisdom to our careers, our relationships, and our behavioral patterns, our personal growth expands hand-in-hand with our spiritual development.

Where does the idea of the Higher Self come from?

Higher Self Yoga emanates from a legacy of ancient Eastern wisdom traditions, Theosophy, and Agni Yoga. Nanette V. Hucknall, the founder of Higher Self Yoga, has written numerous books which integrate these traditions with modern interpretations from Psychosynthesis and Transpersonal Development by Roberto Assagioli.

Connecting with your Higher Self helps you understand how and why you think and act as you do, giving you the tools and knowledge to break free from the negative mindsets and patterns keeping you from achieving your full potential.
Achieve balance and wholeness in your everyday life.
The wisdom of the Higher Self can be applied to every aspect of our world. As you strengthen your connection to the Higher Self, you will see improvements in all the elements of your life, from daily, mundane tasks to your entire outlook on life in general.

How do I work with my Higher Self?

There are many ways to connect with your Higher Self, and the most common paths include meditation, self-reflection, reading, journaling, spending time in nature, and working with a spiritual coach. It is only by experimenting with all of them that you can decide which ones are best suited for your unique personality.
