BACKGROUND

BRAD HAY

I have been a dedicated student and practitioner of Ayurveda, Yoga and Tantra for more than three decades. Devoted over 4000 hours to formal training in acclaimed institutions and with highly recognised teachers in the USA and Australia.

The reason I feel called to share these 5000-year-old Vedic Sciences is because they continue to change my life for the better – and I intend for you to experience the same.

TEACHING

As a teacher, I don’t claim to be perfect nor to have all the answers. I believe the art of teaching Ayurveda, Yoga, and Tantra skilfully and effectively, is to share ancient wisdom with reverence to tradition in a way that makes it relatable to our contemporary lifestyle. For this, a teacher needs to embody the knowledge they teach through lived experience. And boy let me tell you, I know that life can be challenging! Bills to pay, relationships to tend to, children to raise, uncertainties to navigate…

This is all part of our experience of life and is all part of the practice of Ayurveda and Tantra Yoga.

I’M NOT YOUR HEALER NOR YOUR GURU.
THE KNOWLEDGE I SHARE EMPOWERS YOU TO UNCOVER YOUR OWN INNER TEACHER.

LINEAGE

Personal growth is work in progress and seemingly endless. It requires skill, dedication and consistency to initiate and sustain positive change. That is why the sister sciences of Ayurveda, Yoga and Tantra are so powerful! The knowledge and techniques passed down to us by the Himalayan Masters Tradition give us a reliable, time-tested framework to make the journey smoother, more enjoyable and more effective. I am humbled to have been officially initiated into this ancient lineage in 2010.

PHILOSOPHY

Yoga is not a ‘one-size-fits-all quick fix’ nor a guaranteed portal to enlightenment, so I intend to steer clear of dogma or preaching. Instead, I prefer to give students options. Empathise, meet you where you’re at on an individual basis and educate you how to move forward in life. For the best teacher you’ll ever find, is the dormant source of potential buried deep inside of yourself.

I am on a mission to uplevel the skill & capacity of the next generation of Tantric Yoga practitioners & teachers in the world.

Let’s be realistic about reaching enlightenment in this lifetime!

I know how difficult it is to balance spiritual concepts with the material demands of modern day life. I’ve worked on and managed construction sites in the building industry for nearly thirty years, while setting up yoga studios and running trainings around the world. I have overcome addiction in my twenties, lived through the tragedy of losing my brother to suicide, experienced divorce and lived in nine countries/states across three continents, including the US, Indonesia and Sri Lanka. It’s been an exciting  and sometimes exceptionally challenging ride.

Today, I am a happy husband and father of two children, a girl and boy. I can claim to be a more present and patient parent, a more compassionate partner, and an overall healthy and functioning human being. Still flawed and with contradictions, however much better equipped to move from reactivity to self-awareness.  All thanks to the knowledge and tools imparted to us by the traditional teachings of Ayurveda, Yoga, and Tantra. So while I won't promise you enlightenment, I can say with all certainty that these sciences – if applied intelligently – have the power to help you thrive in life.
