Yogarupa returns to the Chicago area to lead a ParaYoga weekend on “The Yoga of Awakening.”

Throughout this weekend, Yogarupa will focus lectures and practices on the sacred scripture, The Yoga Taravali. Written in the 8th century by the great sage, Shankara, the text outlines a systematic approach to scaling the heights of yoga practice. Asana, bandha, pranayama, kriya, meditation, yoga nidra––transcendence––are all described. Through discourse and practices, Yogarupa will decipher the text that leads to the final culmination of Yoga.

Each class will build on the next in order to elevate your practice and understanding of the science of Yoga and Tantra. Practices are designed to enliven your connection to prana (life force). Dharma talks will help transform how you see the terrain of practice, yourself and your life.  Each session will weave asana, vinyasa, pranayama, meditation, lecture and Q&A. All levels 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.
