Yoga is more than a pose tradition.

Its postures, philosophies and allied techniques are most effective when employed together.

*Making Yoga Rain: New Practices for Strength and Settledness* 

Saturday Aug 6, 12:30-2:30pm ~ $30

This practice begins in saddle (goddess) posture and guides you in movements with greater creative range. We will learn how alignment-in-movement relates to yoga’s aims of maintaining meditative focus and refining attention. Known as a form of Shiva Tandava, this approach to vinyasa incorporates chants, meditations and mudras tied to Shiva’s storied son, Ganesh.

*Getting Fresh with Ganesh: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About the Elephant-Headed Wealth-God*

Saturday Aug 6, 3:00 – 6:00pm ~ $40

Tubby and elephant-headed Ganesh lost his human head to the sword of his dad, Shiva. He lived on to become the master of money and the king of fate. He’s lovable and awful at the same time, and inclined to being placed on your mantlepiece because he’s so cuddly, likable, and weird. In this talk, we’ll learn his myth: how he came to be associated with obstacles, ganas (spirits), art, rupees, and the lowest chakra: muladhara.
