AGNI – Fire Flow Backbends, Pranayama & Vision
Awaken your heart fire in this uplifting practice of standing poses, backbends and pranayama. Agni is the Sanskrit word for “fire.” Agni governs passion, transmutation and release of old stuck patterns. Backbends help untie the knots of the heart, transform fear and open the physical and subtle bodies to the healing power of love. This intelligent sequence pulses symmetrical and asymmetrical backbends to build healthy alignment for the back and builds a steady foundation for a lifetime of practice. This sequence increases vitality, strengthens the posterior chain of muscles, clarifies the mind and kindles the fire of the heart to blaze more brightly.
SOMA – Nectar Flow Hips, Mantra & Meditation
Bathe in the nectar of yoga with deep hips, twists, inversions, mantra and meditation. This session turns inside with a more introspective practice of self-acceptance and reflection. The alchemy of yoga holds the essential understanding that a balanced yoga practice is both Fire & Nectar. The heating aspect of the practice is called tapasya – “that which heats up” or agni – “fire” and the cooling aspect of the practice is called soma – “moonlight” or that which offers the nectar of the practice. Agni & Soma together offer a balanced energy so the yogi both burns away the dross and receives nourishment through the practices. Without fire in the practice, there is no transformation. Without coolness in the practice, then the yogi can burn out. Fire & Nectar are the complementary opposites and the yogi cultivates both in practice and life.
