Saturday 9:00-12:00 Session
Journey through the Five Elements.
In this workshop session, we will about the energetic layers of being (5 koshas), and how they operate in our lives. This holistic practice will take you through a short repeated sequence on an ever deepening journey through the layers. As we complete the bliss layer, we will enjoy a spontaneous relaxation and meditation. As usual with Vishva ji’s holistic Akhanda Yoga classes, this class will include asana, pranayama, visualization, relaxation and meditation.
Hip Opening Akhanda Flow Session: Theme – Root and Sacral Chakras
Removing energy obstacles and flowing through stuck emotions.
Discussion: Water, movement, going with the flow. What does it mean, and when should we resist habitual patterns and consciously create new ones. Recent research in neuroplasticity confirms what Patanjali mentions in the Yoga Sutra (I:…) When a pattern is dysfunctional we can “cultivate the opposite” and literally re-create our reality, sculpt the flow of our lives.
Mantra practices and Closing Mantra
Sunday 9:00-12:00 Session
Fire Puja followed by Classical Kundalini Class
In this class we will explore oscillating movements, postures, mantra, and both dynamic and integrative pranayama techniques. We will also work with chakra visualizations and seed sounds – the rich symbolism of the Tantra tradition. The flow of the class will be particularly geared towards the theme of the Navel and Heart Chakras, and Fire and Air.
Discussion: The meaning of fire and light in yoga. Exploring what arose in the class, pranayama explanations, and the energetic doorway/movement from the navel to the heart chakra.
Sunday 2:00-5:00 Session
Going more deeply into integrative and nurturing breathing practices like Anuloma Viloma and Brahmaree
Hatha-Raja class: Discovering bliss through the sound of the bees, including 15-minute meditation. Theme: 3rd eye and crown.
An astoundingly beautiful practice, meditative and deeply opening, a beautiful finale to this astounding workshop.
