Prana Mandala Vinyasa
Experience an immersion to tend the inner fire through the transformative full-spectrum practice of Chakra Mandala Vinyasa integrated with sublime teachings and meditations of the earliest Tantras.
Our journey will move through the Prana Mandala Vinyasa sequences refined over the last decade and integrated with the teachings and chakra meditations from the earliest Tantra. Each day you will explore chakra prana vinyasa sequences to balance and liberate your system integrating prana mandala namaskar, circular sequencing, chakra-based meditation, mantra, mudra, and yoga nidra (deep relaxation). We will also integrate movement meditations, prana danda yoga, voice-mantra-fire empowerment for embodiment
Through this practical and inspirational exploration of the chakra system and yogic body, we will develop a transformative approach to the body mandala and learn to assess our imbalances and translate this into practical vinyasa yoga sequences for our self, private students, group classes and living the flow of yoga.
In a world where we can see the disconnecting effects of a “dim fire” or the burn out of the “excessive fire”, inner firekeeping is an all-encompassing metaphor for the yoga of householder life. The chakra system brings together the alchemy for tending the fire of the many dimensions of ourselves – root to heart to crown, inner and outer. Our mission is to emerge nourished and inspired with tools to deepen your practice, teaching living yoga.
