Event Navigation

Yogarupa returns to the Chicago area to lead another
inspiring ParaYoga Immersion, 
“The Shiva Sutras”*

This event is full: scroll down and click Buy! to add your name to the waitlist.

The Shiva Sutras is one of the most sublime texts of the Yogic and Tantric traditions, revealing a systematic path for deepening practice as well as understanding its ultimate achievements. Combining the techniques of pranayama, mudra, mantra and yantra, the Shiva Sutra revels in and reveals the access point of the vast pool of spiritual power, called kundalini shakti.  

During this weekend, Yogarupa leads an exploration of the key wisdoms of this sacred text through yoga practice and lecture. Practices focus on enlivening your connection to life force and its role in unlocking spiritual potential. Dharma talks illumine the terrain of understanding how to see your practice, self, and capacity in the world from the exalted seat of these teachings. Sessions will progress as a journey, weaving dynamic asana, vinyasa, pranayama and meditation, and feature lectures and Q&A opportunities. 

All levels of dedicated practitioners are welcome.

Note to students attending: no mats or props are provided, please bring your own mat and whatever props you use for your practice, such as a blanket, block or strap.
