Universes Within Exploring the Inner Landscapes of Yoga

For students with min. 6 months of yoga experience.

When yoga practice took ancient seekers deep inside, they encountered an amazing world beyond rational thought. According to classical texts, within the body of a yogi lies an entire universe: mountains, valleys, oceans, rivers, moon, and stars. Yogis used symbols to map this landscape, which evolved into the chakras, granthis, and nadis of medieval hatha yoga. Come shine the light of kriya, asana, pranayama, bandha, and mudra into your inner world and look closely through the lens of meditation.

In this program, you explore

  • Daily asana and pranayama
  • Esoteric hatha yoga techniques to activate and channel energy
  • Yogic symbolism and how it applies to contemporary practitioners
  • Deep introspection and personal exploration in safe community.

Practice as the ancient yogis did, using hatha yoga rituals to access transformative experiences.
