A Weekend Immersion for Yoga Teachers and Students with Eric Shaw

Prasana Yoga Practice
These sessions will teach us methods for overcoming the obstacles in our lives through a practice that aims to ground our body and mind with rarely-taught techniques from the tradition.
In these workshops, you will explore a range of new vinyasas that entrain organic movement. Along with this, you will learn a system of mudras, mantras pranayamas and vinyasas—and the philosophies and archetypical myths that give these intertwined methods meaning and purpose.
Through this, you will learn yoga’s holistic approach to both the higher and lower manifestations of human happiness.
This is Prasana Yoga, a complete system that provides a webwork of methods that speed you toward your aim—whatever your aim may be.
Saturday, 3 – 6pm

Sound and Fury: The Yoga Tradition Over the last 5000 Years
Is yoga history a crapshoot collection of cascading facts and figures, or a stately progression of predictable developments all foreseeable by a properly trained eye?
In this whizzing array of faces and names and falls of yoga empires over 5000 years, told with compelling pictures, rousing stories and the most reliable information we know about from the yoga tradition, you’ll get a golden opportunity to answer that question (under expert guidance!) for yourself.

Getting Fresh with Ganesh: Everything you Always Wanted to Know about the Elephant-Headed God
Ganesh: Fat, elephantine, garlanded with jewels: is he your mama?
He sure acts the part: removing your obstacles, granting boons, inspiring muses.
Where did this dude come from?
Ganesh is the tubby, elephant-headed son of Shiva, master of money, King of Fate. He’s loveable and awful and finds himself being stacked on your mantlepiece because he’s so cuddly, likeable and weird.
In this talk we tell his myth: how he came to be associated with obstacles, ganas (spirits), art, and rupees—and the low, low chakra: muladhara.
Parvati’s son, made from dirt and honored everywhere.
Come learn the history of Ganesh.
