Tantra Vinyasa Masterclass with Grace Millsap

Friday 2/23 7:00-8:30pm

Location: Be Yoga Dilworth

Sign Up Now!

Tantra is an ancient practice that weaves mantra, meditation, mudra, pranayama, and asana into one practice, intentionally sequenced to refine and strengthen prana, or our lifeforce. These tools allow us to peel back the layers and discover our true, and more authentic selves.  We will harness the natural, slower rhythm of the evening as a way to slow down, release, and let go. Students should expect a moderate asana practice, followed by floor work with longer holds, and end with an extended savasana and meditation.

Investment: $18 or a class from your class pass

Saturday 5/12 10:00am-4:30pm

Location: Be Yoga Carmel

Yoga is a spiritual practice cleverly disguised as a physical workout. Do it for your body and you will get fit.
But do it for your mind, and your body automatically follows expanding the experience beyond your current physical capacity.
This session is about discovering the link between your physical and subtle body, and between your mind layers and the layers of the universe.
We will explore methods for binding the 5 senses and 5 main body parts in practice. You will understand the 5 binds of the mind, and how they relate
to the five elements of the universe influencing 5 different states of awareness. By gaining deeper knowledge, you will create a safe harbor for physical practice and learn how to control the trajectory of your practice.

CEU’s available.

Investment $90
