"Tantric Vinyasa Workshop"

March 17-18, 2018
Tantric Vinyasa Workshop at Samadhi Center for Yoga in Denver, CO

Tantric Vinyasa Workshop: Samana Vayu, the Perfect Balance This creative flow will center on our center: the force of stillness and homeostasis. Our practice will weave together creative elements of asana, breath, and bandha to discover new levels of peace and tranquility. Through practice, discussion, and the often underestimated leela, or play, we will develop the tools necessary to burn bright, to cast away darkness, and to shine light upon our communities. Come play!
