Bhavani Maki Kriya Yoga Workshop Schedule:




Sutra Class 1- Generating Tapas (Thursday, May 31st 5:45-7:45pm)~$50
Patanjali uses the term Kriya Yoga as the active purification of the physical, mental and emotional bodies. The first aspect he mentions is Tapas, the value of challenging our self to keep us vital and dynamic. We will explore Tapas in reference to the Sutra on practice of asana and pranayama .

Asana Class 1- Standing, Balancing and Twisting (Friday, June 1st 9:15-11:15am)~$75
The Yoga asana can be applied systematically as an act of purification, known as Kriya. This subtle yet profound shift penetrates the physical and subtle bodies in a way that moves energy to uplift and invigorate all of our systems. Standing, balancing and twisting asana will provide the context to explore freedom within the content of our being.

Sutra Class 2- Svadya:  (Friday June 1st 5:45-7:45pm)~$50
The second aspect of Kriya Yoga is Svadhyaya, self-analysis. An inquiry into the nature of Self and how the Sutra encourage the art of unfolding into one’s most authentic Self.

Asana Class 2-Asana for the Nervous System (Saturday June 2nd 9:15-11:45am)~$75
The ancient masters describe strength as the development of Sushumna Nadi, or the central nervous system and Bandha as a point of stability to explore concentrated awareness. This class will work directly with the nervous system as the link between the Earth’s magnetic field and accessing cellular lightness in our personal sphere.

Sutra Class 3- Ishwarapranidhana: Sutra Study (Saturday, June 2nd 2-4pm)~$50
The third aspect of Kriya Yoga is Ishwarapranidhana, recognition that there is a greater perspective that holds all of creation in balance. An inquiry into the nature of the spirit and the soul, and how to leverage one’s Karma into Dharma – our unique offering of self to the Self.
