4pm-6pm                        6pm-8pm
male identifying         female identifying

In this months’s ongoing series of workshops we’ll be continuing to learn and practice the MogaDao sexual essence qigong forms and introduce the personal sexual vitality and self-cultivation practices, including internal alchemy, accupressure, massage andbreath work.   These workshops will focus in part on the practices that relate directly to the anatomies of males and females respectively, and/or the energies thereof. Gender non-conforming individuals, transgender individuals, and intersex individuals may study in whichever context(s) they identify.

We will also be discussing the nature of sacred sexuality, personal practice and energetic care with regard to various styles of relationship; we will be addressing the powerful and important association between healing (from chronic illnesses) and the very particular practices and ideologies of MogaDao Sacred Daoist Sexuality; and spiritually we’ll be addressing the question of how sexuality and spirituality are integrated in MogaDao: The Way of Complete Harmony, for all individuals, from the consciously celibate to those in sexual relationships. 

These teachings and practices are derived from the original practice tradition of MogaDao, created and founded by Zhenzan Dao. For more information please visit

Surya Namaskar - Solar Powered Sadhana - Four Week Series: Part 1 - w/ Yamuna Devi

Surya Namasker – Solar Powered Sadhana 

Four week series Sundays 1:30pm-3pm beginning October 8th.

Until the early 20th century, Surya Namaskar was a Vedic practice – a ritual honoring the arrival of Surya, the Sun and was practiced as a morning prayer.  The Sun Salutation was much more than an exercise, and praised the Sun in 12 aspects as he moves through the 12 astrological houses.   The Sun Salutation began being integrated into Hatha Yoga practice after Swami Sivananda recognized the many health benefits that are a side effect of the practice, sometime in the late 1930’s-40’s.  Today, Surya Namaskar is found in many lineages of Hatha Yoga.


A four week series exploring the Vedic roots and history of the classical Salutation to the Sun and its evolution into a completeHatha Yoga practice. Learn how to activate the chakras and chant the bija (seed) sounds and mantras for each posture.  Appropriate modifications of all postures and movements can easily be modified for both the beginner and the experienced student, as well as those with physical or medical limitations.  Each class will include theory as well as practice, so bring a notebook and pen, as well as your mat, and will conclude with guided deep relaxation.  You can attend any or all of the first three sessions, however Week 4 requires participation in the preceding sessions.

Week 1:  Surya Namaskar - Salutation to the Sun
In the first class, you will be introduced to the Classical Sun Salutation with a focus on correct alignment in each position. Modifications andadaptations will be offered that will allow all levels of student to comfortably practice Surya Namaskar.  Students with medical or physical limitations will be shown how to safely accommodate individual needs.  

Week 2:  Surya Namaskar and Solar Chakra Activation
When we practice the Salutation to the Sun, powerful activation of the chakras can be consciously initiated through visualization and intention. Not only are the major chakras brought into play, but also some of the many minor chakras located in the body.  In the second portion of class, you will learn how to combine the chakra work with the Sun Salutation.

Week 3:  Surya Namaskar and the Bija Sounds and Mantras
In the Vedic tradition, each of the postures of the Sun Salutation has a one syllable ‘seed’  sound, and a Surya mantra describing the attributes of the Sun. The mantras may be recited as a meditation, as well as incorporated into Surya Namaskar, which will be covered in the second portion of this class.  

 

Week 4:  Integration of Surya Namaskar – Solar Powered Sadhana. 
In the final installment of the series, a brief review of chakra activation and the bijas and mantras will move us into a practice that will blend all aspects into the actual practice, creating the Solar Powered Sadhana!  Participation in the first three classes is necessary as this is the culmination of the series!
 

$20/Class or all four $75 in advance!  Sliding Scale – no one turned away for lack of funds.
