Program Description
In the ancient Tantric Hatha Yoga traditions, yogis developed and practiced asanas as part of a biologically based spiritual technology. They practiced specific breathing patterns, internal focal points, and visualizations, for the purpose of inducing spiritual experiences. They raised their biological energy (prana) to very high states, causing transformation in perception and experience of Self. Most ancient yoga texts, including the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, were based on these experiences of altered states of consciousness. In this program we will use Swami Kripalu’s approach to asana to explore lesser-known techniques that can be used to enrich the practice of yoga.

This virtual retreat will be held over the course of 2 weekends, with optional yoga practices during the week between (included in the total course price).

*Please note: For health and safety concerns, this program is being held virtually via Zoom*
