Course Overview

In this interactive digital workshop you will:
  • Learn the secrets of the masters as you refine your practices of asana, pranayama, relaxation, and meditation into a precision yoga practice.
  • Tap into the main bioenergetic pranic hubs of the body. Cultivate the power needed to bring about self-transformation and prosperity.
  • In a methodical way, learn how to reclaim a vibrant, clear mind instead of one that is distracted and subject to roaming tendencies.
  • Step-by-step practicums. Learn the specialized yogic techniques of:

  • —Agni sara (“essence of fire”): a technique that clears the passage to the heart by awakening and harnessing the energy from the lower three chakras.

    —Pracchardana and vidharana: special pranayamas that clear the passage to the heart by channeling the energy from the higher chakras, including the ajna chakra (eyebrow center).

  • Assimilate potent practices that have been part of an unbroken living tradition for thousands of years. These practices lead us to the lotus of the heart, which is the seat of our soul and the gateway to samadhi: the power, perfection, and essence of Yoga.
  • Participate in a real-time guided meditation and Q&A session with Pandit Rajmani Tigunait. He will address your specific questions, clarify workshop content so you can take these practices home, and will guide you through the practice of meditating on the lotus of the heart.
