advanced asana

Tap into your perfect flow — the next step for teachers and advanced practitioners alike to tap into the mechanics of asana while refining physical practice.

Each 3 hour class includes Master Class practice + posture workshop. Each week we will examine postural alignment, sequencing, and assists. We will focus on advanced poses like arm balances and inversions, as well as a review of the poses that build up to these more complex forms.

the 5 great insights [vipassana]

Training the mind is important to be present during moments when transformative insights appear. A dedicated spiritual practice which involves our body, emotions, energy & mind makes insights occur more readily & in a way we may receive without becoming unsettled by their powerful impact. 

We will explore the nature of reality as taught by the four ancient schools of Buddhism & the key insights which lead to awakening.
