'80s Yoga/ Dance Party to Benefit Living Yoga
The Art and Science of Practice with Yogarupa Rod Stryker
Yogarupa returns to the Portland to lead another
powerful ParaYoga Immersion.
Expect asana, bandha, pranayama and much more at each session.
Open to all levels.
Practice, called sadhana in Sanskrit, is the cornerstone of our experience of yoga. What and how we practice determines what we ultimately gain from this ancient system. In our modern age of group classes and a wide range of yoga styles, how does a sadhaka, a seeker, ensure that they're getting the most from their practice? What do the insights of the yoga tradition tell us about how to use our practice to best prepare for life and ultimately fulfill our role as a spiritual seeker? Since practice can and should be tailored to meet our individual needs, what is the systematic approach to achieve one's highest aims with wisdom and dedication?
In this weekend we'll explore the sources of Tantric hatha yoga––through asana, bandha, pranayama and meditation––with particular focus on the stages of practice that impact one, your mind, two, your energy, and three, your soul. Open to students of all levels.
