Mantra illumines both heart and mind. Mudra creates a subtle body seal of the teachings. Asana, pranayama, intention and music guide you on a sacred pilgrimage in the temple of your body.

Ignite love and stoke your heart fire in this uplifting practice of standing poses, backbends and pranayama. The practice of backbends in deep friendship with the breath creates powerful change in both the physical and subtle bodies. With skillful alignment built from the foundation up, these poses release stagnancy and invite tremendous vitality and freedom into your whole being. In this progressive sequence of symmetrical and asymmetrical backbends, the body sheaths are purified, the mind clarified, the heart renewed and the soul called forth to its most juicy, rasa-filled expression. Bhakti is the path of love, devotion and loyalty and when you rock it out, everything is renewed in the yogic mandala of Fire and Nectar.
