A Weekend with Ty Landrum

Location: The Yoga Space, Big Studio
Dates: September 21-23

FRIDAY

BREATHING INTO THE SUBTLE BODY (6-8 PM) $45

In the subtle anatomy of Hatha Yoga, the two main channels of respiration are called Ida and Pingala.  In this session, we learn to feel the breath moving through these channels, connecting the lower spheres of the body to the higher, and we consider the flow of breath through these channels as a touchstone for proper alignment.  This session will involve an exploratory asana practice, based on the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, together with light pranayama and subtle body visualization. All practitioners are welcome to attend.

SATURDAY 

MULA BANDHA (10:30-1 PM) $60

Some say that mula bandha is the toning of the pelvic floor.  Other say that mula bandha is the experience of non-duality.  Still others say that mula bandha is the awakening of the feminine sublime.  What do these disparate things have in common?  This workshop aims to clarify. Observing the subtle breath within our bodies, we discover a thread of sensation that reaches from the pelvic floor to the soft palette, a thread that connects us to the primitive source of our vitality.  By awakening our love and admiration for where that thread leads, we can invite some of the finer experiences of mula bandha to arise.  This session will involve an invigorating but accessible asana practice, based on the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, together with pranayama and subtle body visualizations.  All practitioners are welcome to attend.

EXPLORING THE PELVIC BASIN  (2:30-5 PM) $60

According to Hatha anatomy, the pelvis is the center of both the earth and water elements in the body.  And we can experience the pelvis as an area of profound psychical density, or as a wellspring from which our creative forces flow.  In this session, we explore some different ways of inviting the subtle breath to move through the pelvis, and to release the density that gathers there, so that we can reconnect, on the level of immediate experience, to the primitive source source of our vitality.  This session will involve a slow but deep asana practice, together with subtle body visualization, and a long, restorative closing sequence.

SUNDAY

MYSORE (10:30-12:30PM) $40

A traditional Mysore-style Ashtanga class.  Beginners are welcome, but some familiarity with the standing sequence is requested.

PHILOSOPHY: THE TANTRIC BODY (1-2 PM) $20

The Tantric body can be imagined as a composition of five concentric spheres, with the essence of each sphere radiating outward, and pervading the inner space of all those that surround it.  At the center, and pervading every other sphere, is a form of consciousness called cidananda, “consciousness overflowing with bliss.”  The purpose of Tantric practice is to connect us to that bliss, by taking us beyond the mind, beyond the prana, and beyond the void, into the luminous center of our being, were we can feel the primitive movement of the creative impulse pouring into the open expanse of consciousness.  In this session, we consider Hatha Yoga as a method of working with the body to access that blissful center of our being, and we query the spirit of the practice by contemplating the brilliant story of the birth of Ganesh, the patron deity of the pelvic floor.
