    Join us for weekend one of our 300 hour YTT program! This module is open to the public as well. Not sure if you’re ready to commit to the full program? Start with this amazing module before deciding.

     

    Akhanda Yoga is the universal path of yoga preserved in it’s holistic form, as a science of self-realization and inner balance.  Akhanda means whole and indivisible, and refers to both our innermost nature, and the complete tradition of yoga. In the west yoga is often diluted to be made purely physical, ignoring the other four sheaths of consciousness in form, the Koshas. Instead of striving primarily for physical strength and balance, Akhanda yoga informs us how to absorb and contain vital life force energy in our physical and subtle bodies. This holistic style was founded by Himalayan Master and Teacher, Yogrishi Vishvketu. Asana, pranayama, mantra, philosophy, meditation and joy are incorporated into each practice.

     

    What you can expect from this weekend:

     

    • Introduction to Akhanda Yoga, asana practice, techniques, sequencing & philosophy
    • Kosha Yoga: the five sheaths: physical, pranic/energetic, mental, wisdom/oneness, & bliss layers.
    • Ayurveda & a new exploration of the gunas – raising consciousness
    • Mantras used in Akhanda Yoga, the practice, the benefits & how to present.
    • Pranayama – basic techniques review, advanced khapalabhati & alternate nostril breath preparing for retention
    • Introduction to Kundalini Yoga
