100–Hour Yoga Sadhana Training
Chakras, koshas, nadis, prana vayus, gunas, bhutas—yoga’s tantalizing descriptions of the unseen aspects of ourselves are startling and powerful. Understanding these subtle body maps and integrating that understanding into our yoga sadhana, or practice, awakens an entirely new dimension of experience and comprehension. This series is a systematic study of philosophy and practices from the Upanishads, Yoga Sutra, and Tantric Shastras designed to broaden our understanding of our own nature and the elegant practices that foster our deepest potentials and greatest healing.
