This is a fluid-form vinyasa with alignment skillfully infused into the flow of the practice, weaving poses on the thread of the breath. Myth opens the mind and generates new insight. Mantra clears the way and heals the heart. Mudra recalibrates the subtle body. Magic comes to life in this soulful pilgrimage of your own mythic journey. All levels welcome. * Special Guest Deity to be revealed at the beginning of class.
Saturday, November 5th, 11:15am-2:15pm
Agni – Fire Flow Backbends, Pranayama & Vision
Awaken your heart fire in this uplifting practice of standing poses, backbends and pra-nayama. Agni is the Sanskrit word for “fire”. Agni governs passion, transmutation and release of old stuck patterns. Backbends help untie the knots of the heart, transform fear and open the physical and subtle bodies to the healing power of love. This intelligent se-quence pulses symmetrical and asymmetrical backbends to build healthy alignment for the back and builds a steady foundation for a lifetime of practice. This sequence in-creases vitality, strengthens the posterior chain of muscles, clarifies the mind and kin-dles the fire of the heart to blaze more brightly. All levels welcome.
Saturday, November 5th, 3:15-5:45pm
SOMA – Nectar Flow Hips, Mantra & Meditation
Bathe in the nectar of yoga with deep hips, twists, inversions, mantra and meditation. This session turns inside with a more introspective practice of self-acceptance and re-flection. The alchemy of yoga holds the essential understanding that a balanced yoga practice is both Fire & Nectar. The heating aspect of the practice is called tapasya – “that which heats up” or agni – “fire” and the cooling aspect of the practice is called soma – “moonlight” or that which offers the nectar of the practice. Agni & Soma together offer a balanced energy so the yogi both burns away the dross and receives nourishment through the practices. Without fire in the practice, there is no transformation. Without coolness in the practice, then the yogi can burn out. Fire & Nectar are the complemen-tary opposites and the yogi cultivates both in practice and life. All levels welcome.
Full weekend cost: $145 by October 21st; $160 after
Individual 2.5 hour class: $45 by October 21st; $50 after
Individual 3 hour class: $55 by October 21st; $60 after
Register here for the full weekend or individual sessions.
