Courses are for individuals and groups who want to learn effective simple techniques to that transform their lives for the better. These courses (or workshops) are offered on a private or small-group basis, and require a commitment to attend a minimum number of sessions over a period of one or two months. All courses come with video and other materials to ensure that you are able to practice daily and quickly develop confidence in your abilities and therefore will be able to continue your development on your own once the course is completed.
VyaVinyasa for core strength, mobility and energy
In this course, 10 linked sequences inspired by Vyayam (an Indian precursor Qi Gong) and specific yoga asanas are studied and practiced in detail on a physical, energetic, chakric, and contemplative level. The emphasis is on opening the hip and shoulder girdles, developing mindfulness in movement and breath, opening the chakras, and cultivating and moving energy both with the hands and the mind. Mastery of this course is the essential foundation in developing a self-directed VyaVinyasa practice.
Yoga Nidra: a course in transformative relaxation
In regular sleep, we lose consciousness and upon awakening, we may or may not feel rested depending on the dreams or other mental activity that has occurred randomly during sleep. In Yoga Nidra, also known as lucid dreaming, you simply rest on your back and follow a voice that guides you to ever-deeper states of relaxation and into the world of dreams while remaining aware and in control of your mental activity. From this place of deeply relaxed awareness, it is possible to release hidden blockages and rewire the unconscious to energize your life goals instead of acting as a drag against them. Details . . .
Igniting the chakras
This series consists of six sequences, each directed to a specific chakra. While the chakras exist in the energetic body, they greatly influence secretion of hormones that regulate a large number of physical and biochemical processes. Thus this series treats both the physical and mental bodies by purifying and energizing the energetic body. Central to this series is the proper pronunciation and energetic projection of bija mantras associated with each chakra.
