|yoga, tantra, & ayurveda 6/29/12 6:00pm-8:30pm today there are an estimated 16 million yoga practitioners in the united states alone. out of these 16 million, a fraction of them are introduced to yoga’s sister sciences of tantra and ayurveda. in ancient times, students would begin studying ayurveda and tantra, then dive deeper into classical yoga. in this class we will first define ayurveda and tantra along with some of their key components. next we will learn what they have in common and how they differ. finally we will experience a yoga practice drawing upon the knowledge of all three sister sciences. this will be a class of moderate physical intensity. all levels welcome. $50 ($45 thru 5/31) or all 3 for $125 ($120 thru 5/31).
shodhana: yogic purification 6/30/12 9:00am-11:30am tantric yoga focuses less on the yamas and niyamas (how we treat ourselves and others) of classical yoga and emphasizes inner purification of the physical, energetic and psychic bodies. when deep inner purification happens, we spontaneously choose to act with compassion and see the world more clearly thus effecting every decision we make. in this unique class, we will use a strong sequence of postures, breathwork and meditation that leave you feeling a deep sense of cleansing but not exhaustion. energized but also centered. you will be challenged physically, but in an intelligent and holistic way that will build prana (the vital life force), not deplete you of it. please arrive with an empty stomach and an open mind! $50 ($45 thru 5/31) or all 3 for $125 ($120 thru 5/31).
tantra: weaving together the material & spiritual worlds 6/30/12 2:00-4:30pm the word tantra means “to weave.” while most spiritual traditions say the material world distracts us from spiritual growth, tantra says that the material world is a manifestation of the divine and that we should weave the two together. it also says we should have a personal relationship with, and can even embody the divine. this class explains (and then applies) the ways to make our practice more than just a physical workout. a tantric vinyasa class is more of a sacred ritual that helps us to identify with the divine light that rests within all of us! $50 ($45 thru 5/31) or all 3 for $125 ($120 thru 5/31).
