At least 5,000 years ago tantric visionaries, inspired by the deepest reverence and passion for unveiling the sacred beauty and mysteries of life, developed what we know as the practice of Hatha Yoga. It includes the following practices: asana, pranayama, bandha, kriya, mudra, mantra, meditation as well as practices pertaining to kundalini awakening, along with a seemingly endless array of other techniques and knowledge.

Tantra, by providing infinite ways to expand the reach and power yoga, is its most complete and sublime approach. Incorporating the wisdom of ayurveda and the whole of brahma vidya (“supreme science”) or knowledge of the underlying reality, tantra provides a direct and accelerated path to achieving life’s ultimate aims. Tantra’s core principle asserts that through self-knowledge and the cultivation of our innate power, we can unfold our fullest potential and thus achieve both worldly and spiritual prosperity.

This Master Training is open to practitioners and teachers of all levels. ParaYoga® Level III Master teacher and guide, Mary Johnston-Coursey, will lead students on a journey of self-empowerment and discovery. The training will demystify the tantric approach to yoga and explore its key touchstones of practice and wisdom that open the doorway to thriving: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Using the traditional tools of Hatha as our foundation we explore, through practice and theory, Tantra as the full flowering of yoga, as well as its uniquely profound approaches to meditation.

Practices will weave together dynamic vinyasa flow, asana, bandhas, and mudra in combination with breath work, meditation, and visualization techniques.
