LEVEL ONE – ON ZOOM
JANUARY 25 – 29, 2021

The Level One Sadhana Intensive will be a repeat of October’s at-home retreat. You will be introduced to pranayama and kriya practices from the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, and have two asana classes each day. The aim of the pranayama classes is to learn the mechanics of deep breathing and yogic breathing exercises that will help calm the sympathetic nervous system, boost the parasympathetic nervous system, enhance the immune system, and maintain emotional and mental balance in these stressful times. The morning asana practice will be traditional Hatha Yoga, and the evening practice will be oriented towards Yoga therapy practices. The Hatha Yoga Pradipika (download a PDF book here -26Mb) lectures will introduce you to the basics of this 15th century Yoga text. Practitioners of all levels are welcome.

SIVA PUJA WORKSHOP – ON ZOOM
MARCH 7, 9 & 11, 2021

6:15 PM – 7:15 PM followed by Q & A and Mantra Chanting.
As a follow up to the Ganesh Puja workshop we did last year, we will continue puja instruction with a Siva Puja. In the Yoga Yajnavalkya, Ishvarapujana is listed as one of the niyamas, but not Ishvara Pranidhana as in Patanjali Yoga Sutras. As part of this intensive we’ve decided to include instruction in puja as a practice of devotion. It is said that worship of the Divine is not only one of the key practices of yoga, but that without the feelings of devotion and awe that worship produces (called bhavana, or deep rooted feelings or moods of devotion and surrender), samadhi cannot be attained, nor even the basic levels of dharana, focused attention. The Intensive will conclude on Maha Sivaratri, the great night of Lord Siva, with Sivaratri puja, and you will be prepared and ready to chant some the important mantras along with us as we perform the worship.

REGISTRATION (Sliding scale $27/$54/$108)
NOTE: If you register for Sadhana Intensive – Level 2, the Siva Puja workshop is included. Register here only if you want to attend the Siva Puja Workshop by itself.
