Much of our experience of "yoga" in the West is (comparatively) a modern phenomenon, largely an adaptation of physical education exercise taught to school children in India during the last century These practices, though greatly beneficial, often touch only briefly on pranayama, the gateway to meditation. Following the ancient text of The Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Gherenda Samhita, and the Shiva Samhita, the path of tantric hatha yoga was comprised of practices to both strengthen and polish the "vessel", heighten energy, and allow one to merge ever more fully with all life had to offer. This merging with the rhythms and pulse of the universe was accessed with transformative techniques, including ritual, asana, intense pranayama practices, and bandhas.

In this 20-hour module you will:

  • Explore the intricate details of the more advanced pranayamas, kriyas, and bandhas, through anatomy, personal physiology and experience, as well as immersion into the history and purpose behind these ancient teachings.
  • Learn the appropriate therapeutic applications of pranayama for specific conditions to work with your students and clients on physical, mental, and emotional levels.
  • Discover, as yoginis and yogis living in the modern world, how to apply effective and intelligent adaptations to the practices and therapies, as we consider both our own individual constitutions and those of our students,moving forward together on the cusp of this 21st century "technological revolution".
  • Create strategies to allow for sacred space within these powerful applications, ones that provide a consistent, disciplined environment for continual transformation.

*It is recommended that all participants have at least 6 months of active yoga practice with a certified yoga instructor before attending this program.
