Master Class Weekend with Todd Norian
Shri means auspiciousness and Divine beauty. In the life-affirming teachings of the Tantra, life is Shri-filled and intrinsically beneficent. Life is not out to get you. It's here to support you. Once you begin to understand this, you can relax into the amazing journey life is meant to be. Instead of a problem to be solved, life becomes an exquisite experience to be savored!
The teachings of yoga consistently point to the Absolute where the ground of your being is affirmation, abundance, supreme joy, and bliss. Your true nature and highest potential is held within the Absolute which is Shri, auspicious, awake, vast like the sky, and throbs with ecstasy.
Please join Todd for a weekend of Shri and learn how to transform challenges into life-enhancing change. When you align yourself with Shri, you align with the deepest intention of the Universe.
Friday: Align With Nature's Way
Yoga is a path of co-participation with Grace. It's a dynamic balance of self-effort and surrender. Too much effort can lead to over-participation, which blocks the light of the Universal. Learn how to soften the individual in order to align with a bigger energy. Practice Standing poses, Hip Openers, and Forward Bends, with a focus on the precision of alignment principles. End with Meditation and Kirtan. All Levels.
Saturday: Transform Challenges Into Life-Enhancing Change
There's no real way to be happy without the Tantric view that everything in life is for your awakening. Is life happening TO you, or is life happening FOR you? Attitude is power. Learn how to transform challenges into positive change by aligning with Shri. Glorify life as art through the practice of Standing Poses, Hip Openers, Hand Balances, and Backbends. All Levels.
Saturday: The Power of Patience
Patience is a power tool of consciousness that engenders presence, poise, and perspective. Progress in anything of value, takes patience. Learn how to cultivate patience in poses, by pausing, stepping back, and breathing before advancing. Practice deep Hip Openers, Forward Bends, Twists, Pranayama, Meditation, and Kirtan. All Levels.
Sunday: Lakshmi: Become a Connoisseur of Life
Lakshmi is refined beauty. She is the most ecstatic, scintillating, and mouth-watering experience of being embodied. She is the crest of the wave, the peak experience. Lakshmi teaches you how to be a "connoisseur of life". She is a "taster" of life reminding you to savor every moment as if it were your last. Enjoy tasting and savoring a variety of scrumptious poses including Standing Poses, Inversions, Hip Openers, Hand Balances, and deeper Back bends. Intermediate Level.
