Name:Yogic Cleansing

Yogis believed that one needed to purify the body and clear any energy blockages by using the purification techniques called Shatkarmas or Shatkriyas, as mentioned in Hatha Yoga text - Hatha Yoga Pradipika and Gheranda Samhita before one could continue further on this path. In Sanskrit “Shat” means six, “Karma” means actions. This is the best time to learn or refresh these techniques before spring arrives.

The following are six purification techniques and their major benefits. In each purification techniques, multiple methods and variations are used, but in this workshop, I will choose those techniques which are easily accessible for everyone and works best for the group.

Name:Tantra Principles Of Touch: a workshop for singles and couples

You are invited to an immersive experience where you will explore the principles of Tantra and reconnect with your sensual self.

You may be wondering, what is Tantra? The name Tantra comes from the Sanskrit, a language from ancient India. TAN means “instrument” & TRA means “for expansion”. Tantra is about expanding our consciousness and is a celebration of life. It guides us to deeper intimacy with ourselves, our partners and the entire Universe.

Modern human conditioning of seclusion has us longing for connection, to touch and be touched, to be seen without judgment and in unconditional love and acceptance. This longing can be fulfilled with tantra practices.

Tantra is a practice that combines movement, breath, meditation, bodywork, and sound to assist the energy system within the body, also known as chakras, to open. It creates an active merging of mind, body and spirit. You learn how to open yourself (your senses, your awareness, your emotions) to be present as you TRULY are. When we practice Tantra all our authentic being turns on. Fuel of the sexual energy turns on the life-force energy. Together we will co-create a safe container to explore and surrender to the experience.

You will learn and practice:
-tantric breathing (helps to master full-body orgasm and multiple orgasms)
-authentic connection exercises
-masculine (Shiva) & Feminine (Shakti) energies
-container & boundary setting
-modalities of conscious tantric touch

You’ll leave feeling energized and refreshed and have powerful tantric tools you can take home to enhance your life and relationships.

***This class is for couples and singles.
***All exercises are fully optional.
***No nudity or explicit sexuality in the class.

What to wear: comfortable clothes so you can seat and move freely.

Name: Pranayama for Intermediate Level 1

Pranayama, the science of breath, is considered to be yoga’s most accessible, yet transformative practice.

The yogic theory states that Pranayama is twenty times more beneficial than physical (asana) practice. However, in the practice of Yoga, the importance of Pranayama is often minimalized and ignored due to lack of awareness.

Pranayama has a quick & direct impact on the nervous system, thus intermediate level is divided into two parts to gradually transition the practitioner from beginner’s to intermediate level as taught in the Yoga tradition. For this level, you must have experience or knowledge of practicing the basic pranayama.

This workshop includes theory, practice and Q&A session. You will learn the first level of Intermediate Pranayama step by step by focusing on Kumbhaka (breath retention/suspension), and most importantly how to do it correctly. You will also learn the additional pranayama and its variations which helps and intensifies the experience.

Cost: Early Bird: $25 (by 03/01/2020) and Regular: $30
