HEART FIRE ACTIVATION – BACKBENDS, MUDRA & PRANAYAMA
All levels: $50
Activate your heart fire in this uplifting practice of standing poses, backbends, mudra and pranayama. The human journey is filled with challenges that test one’s inner strength and willingness to transform. Yoga is the means of this transformation, working through the five “body sheaths,” or koshas. The practice of backbends in deep friendship with the breath creates powerful change in both the physical and subtle bodies. With skillful alignment built from the foundation up, these poses release tremendous vitality and freedom into your whole being. In this progressive sequence of symmetrical and asymmetrical backbends, the koshas are purified and the heart is renewed with clarity and compassion.
SATURDAY AFTERNOON CLASS: 2:30-5pm
DIVINE LIFE PURPOSE – DEEP HIPS, MANTRA AND MEDITATION
All levels: $50
Every human being has a valuable gift for the planet. The spiritual practices of Tantra, called sadhana, are effective tools to unleash the vital forces of creativity within you. This creative energy is limitless. Yoga is the skillful means of tapping into this energy and organizing it for the manifestation of your dreams. Yoga guides you to remember your truth and divine life purpose. This workshop highlights mantras that help make positive changes in specific areas of your life. Sianna’s soulful blend of asana with deep hips, twists, and inversions guides you to a quiet place of self-inquiry and clear inner sight. The session culminates with meditation and a long, luxurious savasana. Please bring paper and pen to write your vision and prayer.
