Welcome to an oral tradition where the stories of yoga come alive! We will enter into the conversations of yoga through the lens of the Rajanaka Tantra, an evolving yoga that invites you to love your life by cultivating virtuosity and vulnerability. Through myth and the embodied practices of asana and puja, we will encounter ourselves in thought, feelings and behaviors toward engaging life more deeply. Sarah and Zhenja each bring a wealth of yoga expertise informed by a decade of study with Douglas Brooks, Rajanaka Yoga's bard.
(51% philosophy, 49% asana, 5% more)
Each module includes 3 days (15 hours) of storytelling, conversation and asana practice. In addition, Sarah and Zhenja will teach the core elements of Rajanaka puja (ritual practice), including meditation, mantra and mudra. Supplemental online materials and lectures, and an online discussion group will provide background and continuation to each module.

Agni: The Fire Offering
March 20-22 - Charlotte, NC
Listen to the stories older than yoga, the stories that we as humans must tell to make meaning in a chaotic world. We will locate the Rajanaka within the Indian tradition to see how it emerges from origins in the Vedas and evolves through the worlds of yoga. We will lay the foundations of ritual (puja) that are the core of Rajanaka practice and overlay them onto our asana practice.
