Join us for this healing, transforming, and soul-stirring week of asana and beyond, as we journey into the holistic and shamanic roots of yoga practice through sacred wisdom teachings, dynamic asana, breathwork, meditation, chanting, ceremony, live music, ecstatic dance, and the power of community.
During this week you can experience the power and depth of a heart-centered/holistic yoga practice rooted in the teachings of tantra, bhakti, and shamanism. This is a practice that has no finish line, outer goal, or enlightenment to reach. The teachings of yoga reveal that the truth of being lies within us, as our very nature; it is our natural state. Esalen is the perfect place to experience our natural connection to the five elements and the great forces of Earth and Sky. There will be time to explore deep yogic teachings, and through the powerful container of collective intention (sankalpa) and conscious community (sangha), we will create a safe space for healing and transformation to arise naturally. Each of us can deepen our connection to Earth and Sky and the truth that lies within our hearts.
All levels are welcome. Some experience of asana is of benefit but not required. All students will be supported to go at their own pace and to honor themselves. Please bring a yoga mat.
