Petros in Paris: Jivamukti Masterclass 1 – CONQUER YOUR FEAR, of 3-Part Series “Free Your Soul”
-from the Naradiya Samhita (pre-12th century), one of Krishnamacharya’s stated sources for his revival of Tantric Āsana Vinyasa.Join Petros, Jivamukti Senior Teacher, for “FREE YOUR SOUL“, a 3-Part Masterclass Series, where you will embark on a journey of pranic experience as practiced and taught for thousands of years. There is a deep yearning of the soul to emancipate from the bonds of the material world. We feel this through, physical, emotional, and energetical imbalance and friction. The practice of yoga uses the life force (Prana, physical & mental) to shift those energies to support an awareness of space and freedom that arises when our life is not a mere affirmation of some conditioning but a gentle realization of possible freedom.
**ALL Masterclasses are ALL LEVELS & will Include ASANA PRACTICE as well as YOGA PHILOSOPHY, according to the Focus. Classes can be taken individually but are recommended as a series.**
Masterclass One – CONQUER YOUR FEAR, 07/12, 8 – 10pm – Increase your physical awareness by exploring practices and approaches focusing on the physical body, so that you can gracefully conquer your own fear.
