Deep Vitality and Resilience in Mind and Body

The Teachings of The Yoga Taravali  

Saturday, May 4 & Sunday, May 5

It is with great pleasure that Yoga Beyond the Poses welcomes master teacher Rod Stryker back to Grand Junction for this special weekend immersion to build resilience, hope, inner peace and joy in these challenging times.

Yoga is designed to create strength, stability and inner peace, and to generate contentment.  Yoga is skill in action, and while it starts on the mat, it is intended to be taken off the mat to create a richer life and a better world.

To bring our yoga off the mat with and into our lives to create positive, practical improvements requires a systematic approach that Rod offers to those at all levels of their yoga practice.

This weekend workshop will draw from the teachings of the ancient scripture the Yoga Taravali; a time-tested guide to accessible practices to build a healthier body, a calmer more focused mind and the ability to adapt to change.

Taravali means “multitude of stars,” which refers to the brightest lights of yoga teachings and techniques, available to anyone willing to learn the practices.

You are warmly invited to join us, see old friends and meet new ones, as together we are guided into experiences that will fortify you for the challenges life invariably presents.

Both days will feature yoga nidra (the healing power of conscious dreamless sleep), asana, bandha and mudra (to renew your vital force). You will touch sahaja samadhi (the vast pool of inner joy) as well as anusandhana (abiding in soul).

All dedicated practitioners are welcome. Join us and lift the burdens of the world, and remember the power of your essential nature.

Our time together will also include a Community Dialogue. Our conversation will be an opportunity to share how we practice integrating the teachings into our lives. Our focus is on the practical and personal in the journey of living our yoga to enrich our families, community and work in the world. 

All participants who are enrolled on either Saturday or Sunday are invited to what promises to be an enriching and practical conversation, designed to support you as you take your yoga off the mat as we each do our part to create a better world.
