At Hilton, New York, New YorkTending Our Heart Fire: Embodying the Wisdom, Power, Science, and Yoga of Our Energetic Heart for Individual and Collective Healing
Friday, April 25 — 9:00am - 4:30pm
We have an extraordinary field of energy that emanates from our heart fire, the electromagnetic field that syncopates the rhythms within our body as well as our connections beyond our body. In this experiential intensive based on Shiva's new book, you'll leave with a transformed embodiment of your energetic heart as well as tools to "tend the fire" of your heart on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. The class includes interactive education, two energetic vinyasa practices for embodying the energetic heart, and accessible forms of meditation.
Discussion, asana, and meditation.
Chakra Vinyasa: Liberating the Body Mandala
Saturday, April 26 — 8:00am - 10:00am

We'll learn Chakra Namaskar to energetically balance and enhance the flow of one's life energy dedicated to the elements, and discover the science of sound and mantra within the body to integrate into daily life.
Asana, meditation, mudra, and mantra, and interactive PowerPoint education.
Mandala Namaskar: Circular Movement in Yoga
Saturday, April 26 — 11:00am - 1:00pm
In this increasingly grid-like world, experience the healing power of a mandala (sacred circle) within a namaskar, or moving meditation vinyasa. We'll learn two salutation sequences that unfold in an integrated flow.
Mostly asana. Includes mandala, mudra, meditation, and visualization.
Rhythmic Vinyasa: Synching with the Natural Pulse
Saturday, April 26 — 3:30pm - 5:30pm
One of the core definitions of "vinyasa" is "wave," or "a rhythmic cycle. Within yoga, understanding these cycles is key to creating flow within one's body and life. We'll do a practice dedicated to rhythmic syncopation within the body to help you understand the healing power of rhythm. Based on T. Krishnamacharya's teachings, Ayurveda, and Tantra, we'll learn methods to embody rhythmic vinyasa at all levels of practice as a technique of optimal flow to a way of life healing.
