Sun Practice: Awakening the Force of Transformation
We focus on the approach to practice that links us to and allows us to master prana, or life force. Sun practices increase vitality, subtle awareness, passion, and power.
Moon Practice: Centering and Balancing
Activation of the lunar force creates healing, peace and wisdom. These practices stimulate the nurturing energy that allows us to remain calm in the midst of turbulence, steady in the midst of change. They also lead to mastery of mind and are key to awakening hidden intelligence and intuition.
Fire Practice: Discovering and Living the Ultimate Aim of Practice
The ultimate aim of Yoga practice is to awaken our inner fire––the force of Spirit. Activation of the subtle force of fire leads to extraordinary perception and living. Practice focuses on generating the energy that dissolves inertia and the final obstacles to the highest state of Yoga.
Yoga, Tantra and the Heart Lotus
Unlocking the wisdom and power of the heart leads to supreme glory, peace and capacity. According to the traditions of yoga and tantra the heart holds the keys to the «highest fortune.» The heart lotus, and the soul secrets it holds, are closed until we begin to nurture the heart through the practice of inner worship. As it opens, its unique capacities, including complete understanding of our own mind as well as the teachings is awakened.
