Hridaya Yoga Retreat: Module 3
Refine Your Practice
Expand Your Capacity to Witness
If you’ve graduated from Hridaya Yoga Retreat: Module 2, Module 3 is your chance to deepen your awareness of the subtle bodies, quiet your mind, and expand your capacity to witness sensations, emotions, and thoughts.
Module 3 features 10 days of instruction, each with a 4-hour theory and practice class. A weekly discussion session and a group tapas round out the program. The teachings are mainly based on traditional Hatha Yoga texts, such as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Gheranda Samhita, and the Shiva Samhita.
In addition to new asanas and pranayama techniques, you’ll explore the bandhas, special yogic “locks” that redirect the flow of subtle energy. And, you’ll learn agnisara dhauti, a very powerful practice that purifies the body and subtle structures, induces the awareness of the subconscious mind, and kindles a profound appreciation for the transformative nature of yoga.
Perhaps most importantly, Module 3 allows you to immerse yourself in practice while supported by a vibrant, Heart-centered community.
