|Recurring Event (See all)

Event Navigation


Registration is now open for this event.   Please note that this is our beautiful new website and so once you add Sri Vidya to your cart, you will be prompted to created a new account.  If you are just paying a deposit, you will see the option to do that on the payment screen.

Yogarupa Rod Stryker is excited to offer this new ParaYoga 5-Day Intensive,
part of the new ParaYoga Continuing Education Series. This five-day practice and teacher training intensive is designed to enrich dedicated practitioners, aspiring teachers, or those already teaching. To enroll in this training you must have completed the following PYMTs: Yoga Sutra, Tantra Shakti and Koshas, or at least two out of these three.

Join Yogarupa, one of the West’s true master teachers, as he leads this five-day training which focuses on the teachings and practices that unlock Sri––the all-pervasive wave of beauty and bliss that is the source of life. Through practices and theory you’ll experience, first hand, how asana is part of a larger, more comprehensive tradition––Tantra, which expands the reach of yoga in ever more profound ways.  Each day builds toward the next, each day leads toward you embodying more and more of the grace, wisdom and power of Sri. You’ll use asana and breath to open the portals of your energy body, engage your mind to enter into the profound practices that awaken your Divine potential, work with Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation) and explore the profound teachings of Sri Vidya.

Classes will include theory, dynamic asana sequences, accessible pranayama and tantric meditation as well as Yoga Nidra practices.

Topics Covered

Morning sessions will weave together dynamic asana, pranayama, and meditation practices. They are dedicated to enlivening your awareness of, and your connection to the Sri Vidya lineage and tradition.

Afternoon sessions will deepen your exploration through additional practices, lectures, meditations, and Q & A sessions.

Recommended Reading

There is not a suggested reading for this training, but Yogarupa suggests re-reading the article in the Fundamentals section of your ParaYoga binder titled “Tantra & Classical Yoga” by Linda Johnsen.

Yogarupa also recommends that for that the month or two prior to the start of the training you begin or recommit to your meditation practice. It will be an invaluable aid to understanding the course curriculum as well as contributing to your overall experience of the training.
