APANA + PRANA = INTEGRATION

An advanced level training for Yoga teachers and serious practitioners. Classical Asanas, Pranayama, Mudra and Bandhas are the most important kriyas that lead to the state of meditation. When these practices are done with awareness, knowledge and preparation, yoga becomes sadhana. We will study and practice with the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and other source texts that give insight into pranic application of Kundalini (dormant energy) and Prana Shakti (active energy). Focus will be on proper teaching and practice, historical roots, textual references, therapeutic & physiologic applications and subtle body science.
