SUMMER

SESSION

This year-long intensive for experienced practitioners will be taught in four sessions (winter, spring, summer, and fall) and will focus on helping students understand and embody some of the key aspects which must be established in order for Hatha Yogic Sadhana to advance to more refined levels. Each session will focus on the following:

Winter 2020 (Jan to Mar):

  • Mastery of the core fundamental actions as the basis for all advanced practices

  • Making practice more efficient and potent through the process of skillful reduction

Spring 2020 (April to June):

  • Connections and triggers:  working within the "field of relationships" to bring about greater ease and efficiency

Summer 2020 (July & August):

  • Developing skillful response in practice to the macro and micro forces which influence the human body/mind

Fall 2020 (Sept to Dec):

  • Improving the power and intensity of concentration as the gateway to a more profound sadhana

  • Building more consistency, steadiness and rhythm in Sadhana

This course will build sequentially over the duration of 2020.  For the best learning students are strongly encouraged to commit and attend from the beginning if at all possible.
