Essential Subtle Yoga for and Empowered Practice and a Beautiful Life
Join New York Times Best Selling Author and Senior ParaYogini Katie Silcox
for one of yoga and Ayurveda’s core teachings - the gunas. All yoga is not
created equal. Wouldn’t be amazing to tailor your practice (and your
teaching) in a way that could bring about more passion, embodiement and
illumination. Different practices produce these very different qualities. In
this 3 day workshop, Katie will guide us through the principles and
practices of the sattva (clarity and illumination), rajas (passionate
transformation) and tamas (stability and embodiment). She will shed light
on how different approaches to our yoga practice influence these subtle
forces and how we can use this knowledge to address our individual needs,
unfold our higher potentials and fulfill the purpose of our yoga practice
and our life. All levels of dedicated students welcome for the entire
workshop or individual classes.
Tantra Yoga Vinyasa: Asana, Bandha, Mudra (Friday Evening Session)
Tantra Yoga views the body as a sacred altar and teaches that “worship” means learning to
gradually master the dormant force in the spine called shakti. In this workshop you’ll learn about
and experience the progression of Tantric principles and techniques––starting with accessible
asanas, then build to bandhas and finally mudras––that by activating the body’s latent forces, lead
us to ultimate freedom and exaltation.
Rajas Guna: Aspire, Empower, and Expand (Saturday Morning Session)
Through practice we activate the qualities that help us overcome inner and outer limitations.
Specific postures, sequencing, breath and Bhavana awaken the force that fuels growth and
transformation. We’ll also discuss the role of rajas and its relationship to evolution and
Tamas Guna: Stability and Grounding (Saturday Afternoon Session)
Steadiness in the midst of change and confidence in the midst of uncertainty are the hallmarks of
self-mastery and the culmination of asana. Practice will emphasize yogic techniques that lead to
being still, grounded, stable, and calm. All levels.
Sattwa Guna: Freedom and Illumination (Sunday Morning Session)
Sattwa is the balance that leads to clarity, calm, and the recognition of spirit’s effulgent light. Our
focus is on the practices that unlock awareness and the power of soul, that allow us to connect to
the Sacred and to fully shine internally and externally. All levels.
