Join Yogarupa Rod Stryker, one of the West’s leading master teachers,
for “The Art and Science of Personal Practice”
Practice is the cornerstone of your experience of yoga. What and how you practice determines what you will ultimately gain from it. If practice is going to carry you to its ultimate promise, it will need to balance three things: one, stability, two, the light of self-awareness and three, the fire of divine or spiritual awakening. Thus, for practice to provide the ultimate reward, it must be systematic, and include a gradual progression, employing different techniques at different times to help you mature/evolve, both in and out of your practice. To these ends, the tradition provides seven threads of practice. When applied holistically, these seven timeless principles lead to spiritual awakening, greater joy, fearlessness, wisdom, self-reliance, ultimate freedom and fulfillment.
This workshop will provide practical theories and techniques that will allow you to live the answers to the question––”What do the insights of the great traditions of Yoga, Tantra and Vedanta tell us about how to use practice to best prepare for life and ultimately, spiritual fulfillment?”
This deeply experiential weekend of tantric hatha yoga focuses on the stages of practice on the enlightened path of yoga: how we engage its wealth of practices to unfold our spiritual potential safely, methodically and intelligently, and how we master the balance of power and wisdom internally and externally. Along with asana, bandha, pranayama and meditation, sessions will also include theory as to how you ideally impact your body, mind, energy and soul.
