Sage Wisdom: Tantra + Shakti 100hr.
With Brooke Sullivan
January 15 - 26, 2018
Tantra Yoga is a living embodiment of practice. It is an awakening of dormant energy that is the nexus of our power, understanding, will, clear seeing and right action. Unleashing these powers is both goal and effect when one devotes themselves to a steady, focused practice of Tantra.
In this immersion, we dive deep into the essence of tantra. While tantra has many meanings and applications, the results of embodied power & wisdom, and the improved ability to weave, expand, accelerate & see clearly oneself and one’s surroundings, are all possible through the embodied tantric practices you will learn in this class. Students are required to have had a regular yoga and/or meditation practice for 2 years prior to taking this class OR to have taken the Sage Yoga Teacher Training 200hr. foundational program (or equivalent from another yoga school, pending approval from Brooke). Students will be asked to commit to daily practices including specific meditations, mantra japa, asana, supportive lifestyle practices, and more. These are powerful teachings and as such, students are advised to reflect on whether they can commit the time and energy required to integrate these teachings and practices into daily life.
