Kathryn Payne – Sanskrit Training, Part II. Sound Yoga Studio, Seattle, Washington.
May 29, 2010
Sanskrit is integral to yoga – its pure and sacred sounds essential for harmonizing and balancing the mind. This Sanskrit training will teach you how to approach the language of yoga – as a yoga – that is both enjoyable and inspiring. The first step in learning Sanskrit is to develop an intimacy with its sounds; become familiar with their exact location, feeling their force and power, and the unique way they vibrate the palate and engage the breath. Above all, enjoying sound is at the heart of our program.
Dr. Robert Svoboda & Dr. Scott Blossom – Yoga & Ayurveda, Cultivating Prana
May 22 & 23, 2010
Yoga traditions both Indian and Taoist view the life force, known as prana or chi, as the foundation of the body and mind. Both systems offer us simple ways for understanding, feeling, and cultivating this power within us. Though one may develop some degree of physical ability, without understanding prana the deeper aspects of yoga will remain dormant.
The ancient hatha yoga texts offer direct insight into how we can practice yoga to align ourselves with the currents and rhythms of our prana. From this perspective yoga practice becomes not only a way to live in greater harmony with the laws of the physical body and world but as well a means to recognize the power of our minds and hearts.
