Abhaya Immersion 1: Step Into Grace
Focus is on learning principles of alignment, foundational aspects of the practice, the greater and historical context of yoga, basic anatomy, philosophical concepts grounded in Tantric philosophy, basic pranayama and meditation.
Abhaya Immersion 2: Refining Your Inner Vision
Immersion 2 focuses on refinements of basic bio-mechanics: balanced action in the legs and arms ( spirals) as well as the review of primary alignment concepts. Anatomy study illuminate major muscles of upper / lower body in yoga as well as basic therapeutics. Deeper pranayama and meditation practices guide students into a very full inner experience. The Philosophy study centers around the seminal 1st century, Classical Yogic text, The Yoga Sutras by Patanjali. Comparative study is done between perspective of Classical Period and Tantric period.
