TANTRA YOGA āSANA | INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP

4 HOURS

The foundations of Haṭha Yoga practice are rooted in Tantra. In Tantra, the body (deha) is considered a vehicle for the purpose of nirvaṇa sādhanā (realisation).

When āsana is practiced through a Tantrik lens, not only is the practice itself different, but the effect is also manifestly different.

Tantra Yoga is an inherently subtle practice that combines yoga āsana, prāṇāyāma, bandhas, mantra and meditation. It's an amazingly powerful process that offers deep relaxation, releases blockages (vāsanās and samskāras), and recalibrates your whole being to align with (your true) nature. Through a regular Tantra Yoga āsana practice, you become lighter, clearer, more open and able to detect the subtle bliss in all of life.

Tantra Yoga āsana is what we practice on our retreats and is a pre-requisite for all our more advanced courses. Once you have attended the intro workshop, you can continue to attend the regular or epic hold classes in addition to your regular practice.

This intro workshop includes āsana instruction, knowledge session, take-home notes, Ayurvedic lunch and community hangout.

SANSKRIT | INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP

4 HOURS

IN PERSON AND ONLINE

This Introductory Workshop for Yogīs and Yoginīs has been designed to enlighten you about the the fundamentals of the Sanskrit language, deepen your relationship to your practice and enhance the cultural knowledge of the modern yogi. You will discover the magic of the Sanskrit language and experience the meditative bliss available through a study of sacred speech.

Students are often intimidated by the perceived difficulty of Sanskrit, and whilst it is true that the grammar is challenging, it is not at all difficult to master the correct pronunciation of the alphabet and grasp the esoteric wisdom inherent in the language when it is shared in the correct context. By the end of this three day workshop, you will have been introduced to the fundamentals of the Sanskrit alphabet and have the opportunity to develop an understanding of the esoteric architecture of the Sanskrit language.

You’ll learn:

  • About the 'language of the Gods'

  • The Devanāgarī (and Roman transliteration) for each syllable

  • Correct pronunciation of each syllable of the Sanskrit alphabet

  • Correct articulation / location of each syllable of the Sanskrit alphabet in the palate

  • About the esoteric architecture of consciousness
