Medicine for the modern mind, Moon Practice is a deep, challenging and nourishing Asana practice with longer holds and an emphasis on creating stability and calmness of both body and mind. Standing poses and floor work, coupled with a focus on conscious and extended exhalations are used to guide awareness inwards to touch that pure space of stillness that exists beyond the thinking mind. Moon practice is the foundation of all Tantric Hatha practices that follow. Always take the moon with you.
Sun Practice is about energy management and developing a deeper relationship to Prana, the energy that sustains us and all life. A more dynamic practice than Moon, the Solar path rides the line between cultivating the power we need to excel and the sensitivity we need to touch the subtler planes of reality. In addition to Asanas that open the chest and upper body and an emphasis on developing the inhalation, here we see the introduction of the deeper Tantric practices such as Bandpass and Mudras to increase the voltage and radiance with this vessel, the body. A steady and calm mind is an absolute necessity on the Solar path. Always take the Moon with you.
Igniting the radiant power of Soul. Using Asana practice as the framework, all elements of the Tantric path, including deeper work with Bandpass and Mudras, are utilized to still the mind, cultivate energy, burn through limitations and safely call forth the dormant and sacred power at the base of the spine, Kundalini. Although the arc of physical challenge also increases in Fire practice with the inclusion of inversions, the true emphasis is on the cultivation of an internal heat centered in the navel and a complimentary directing of awareness and energy into the spine, considered our pathway to the Infinite. Ignite, thrive, live the highest version of yourself. And always take the moon with you.
