GO DEEPER BUILDING ON CORE CLASS WITH PRIVATE LESSONS
For students who wish to go deeper in yoga, private sessions are offered to tailor to the student’s needs and also to their current level of practice and expertise. In this manner we can keep a core practice open to all students in regular class offerings and also offer a chance for individual further deepening and progression at each students own rate and level.
More About Each Topic and Future Ones (Ask for Private Lesson 60 Minute):
- Deep Meditation Fundamentals & Technique (Core Common Class at Rivergate Offered to All)
This meditation creates inner silence and is the key to changing your nervous system so you can experience inner silence not only during meditation but increasingly during activity during the day. It is the fundamental that will allow you to experience anything far beyond your best. We will explain the mechanics of the meditation and questions on what you may experience during this meditation as well as how to make it a daily habit.
- Asanas Basic Routine (Relaxing the Body for Meditation)
Most of what we know about yoga are the funny positions we see people twisting and turning into in yoga studios. However, these were only meant to be 1/8 of yoga and used in an entirely different manner than today – preparing us for meditation. To be effective asanas should be light stretching and no more than 10 minutes prior to meditation. We will learn a series of effective asanas to do before the pranayama and meditation that intensify the effects of meditation and will make your entry point easier. We will also learn a 3 min version for the airplane or when you are travelling that you can do standing up. We can go deeper into each one and ensure you are doing them correctly or make adjustments.
- Fitting Meditation Practices in Daily Routine
This workshop will examine how and when to meditate; how many times daily, how to self pace, scheduling in meditation into our lives, best times to practice, and re-inforce previous lessons including why we practice twice a day, and how to fit meditation in even on the busiest days or when surrounded by family or obligations.
The Art of Progressing Joyfully
We will discuss how we can modify times or durations of practices and why we are only adding one practice at a time gradually building up to a full practice. We will discuss some signals that we may be doing too much yoga or not giving our nervous system enough time to integrate the benefits of yoga.
How to balance purification with joy is the art of this inner game. We will learn also what to do when we find ourselves overwhelmed and how to adjust and integrate our practices for a lifetime of joy.
- Spinal Breathing Pranayama
“Cultivating the Soil of your Nervous System”
This simple pranayama (spinal breathing pranayama) is done before the “I AM” Meditation. This is a practice that can spiritually help you gain many years of advancement in each sitting. What you have been doing up to now in meditation is awakening a silent seed. Pranayama will cultivate the soil of your nervous system.
Using breath and mind we will do selective purification of a particular channel in your nervous system that plays a leading role in the rise of enlightment (enlightment is a state of balanced union between inner bliss consciousness and involvement on this earth). You need to combine both the meditation and the pranayama together.
- Mulabandha “Root Lock”
Enlivening Energy Upwards
Mulabandha means “root lock” and enlivens energy upwards. It is associated with the lower level of the spinal nerve and muladhara chakra. It is not recommended unless daily practice of both pranayama and meditation or else you may not get much from it.
This lock moves the energy upwards from the pelvic region and can after time contribute to pleasure or inner luminosity. Initially though it also helps to ensure that energy does not escape from the pelvic region. When done dynamically by contracting and releasing rhythmically it is called asvani mudra.
- Shambhavi Mudra
Purifying Our Control Center
Shambavi means happiness. It is associated with the third eye (ajna chakra) and one of the most important means by which the third eye is opened. This mudra stimulates and purifies the ajna chakra (control center for yoga) regulating the flow of ecstatic energy through the body.
Whereas mulabandha stimulated the lower portion of the spinal nerve (sushumna) to enliven energy upwards, now we are stimulating the top end of the spinal nerve and begin to make a connection there leading to the beginning of “ecstatic conductivity” of the senses moving inwards.
- Enhanced Series Asanas
For Days we Need to Align the Body
In this practice we will do a full hour of yoga asanas for the times when you may wish to have a fuller individual self practice. These are additional asanas beyond the basic ones introduced in the introduction course for when we may have more time to practice or wish to spend more time balancing the body.
After the asanas we will do pranayama, meditation and rest. The full practice including the basic meditation can be done in 90 minutes.
- Siddhasana or “Seat of the Perfected Ones”
Contributing to Rising Bliss
Siddhasana means “seat of the perfected ones” and is considered in the hatha yoga pradipika (the bible of hatha yoga) as the king of all asanas. It is an “aggressive” or strong sitting practice that stimulates prana (energy) in the body which can contribute to rising bliss but also to more purification of the bodies nervous system so needs to be done with regular basic practices.
- Uddiyana Bandha
Assisting Energy Rising Up
Uddiyana bandha (abdominal lock) means to “fly up.” This bandha is associated with the lower and middle level of the spinal nerve, swadisthana and manipura chakras. Performed as a stand alone practice during asana practice, it may occur automatically during sitting practices. This practice combines with mula bandha assist in the rising of energy from the pelvic area upwards.
- Yoni Mudra Kumbhaka
Enlivening Every Part of Our Nervous System
Yoni mudra means “seal of the goddess” and is a very strong technique that opens every part of our nervous system and draws energy up at the same time. It produces large amounts of purification in the body and cultivates the subtle habits of ecstatic biological functioning within us. This mudra purges too the third eye and more.
Cleansing Inner Channels of the Body
Shatkarmas are specific cleansing techniques that are targeted toward the inner channels of the body particularly the gastrointestinal GI tract, nasal passages and sinuses which have a significant impact on the flow of neurobiological energy throughout the body. The six shatkarmas are dhauti, basti, neti, trataka, nauli and kapalabhati. We will discuss a few and practice one together.
- Kechari Mudra
“To Fly Through Inner Space” The Rise of Escstatic Bliss
The connection we make at the top of the sushumna (ida and pingala meet near nasal passages) so in ketchari which stimulates this region we bring up ecstatic conductivity more than any other practice. It illuminates the entire nervous system. Ketchari is a perfect companion to shambavi and we will only prepare for the beginning stage I (there are four stages).
Stillness in Action
Samyama is one of the most powerful yogic techniques that can only arise after inner silence in meditation is achieved. Meditation allows us to clear out the obstructions in the subconscious mind and developing a clear awareness of our inner silence. With samyama we are acting directly within our inner silence to produce an outflow of positive effects that purify our nervous system and surroundings in powerful ways – to external manifestation.
The Samyama “sutras” proposed by AYP will allow you to create an incredible balance within prepared for just about anything.
