combines Iyengar and Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga in his teaching practice. Also a licensed massage therapist, he has been influenced by Ida Rolf, Moshe Feldenkrais, and Thomas Hanna. Tias is a long-time student of Tsoknyi Rinpoche in the Dzogchen practice of Tibetan Buddhism.
This yoga immersion uncovers the fundamental common essence of dhyana (meditation) and asana (posture) practice. We will focus on cultivating meditative awareness through internal listening and subtle attunement while on the mat and also while walking outside at Esalen. Then, we’ll bring it all to the meditation cushion. This combination of asana, pranayama (breath), and clear and poignant teachings from the Zen tradition (poems, koans and lore), helps us deepen and accelerate our practice.
