Prana-samachare sama-darshanam Shiva Sutra 3.22
“The experience of equanimity comes from the even flow of prana.”
—Pandit Rajmani Tigunait

The sophisticated techniques of tantra yoga applied to asana and pranayama are particularly effective for drawing the mind into meditation. Using the tantric anatomy of the subtle body, we’ll explore how to balance the flow of prana shakti in the body and mind, and then move into a new dimension of awareness. This retreat explores tantric yoga as the doorway to meditation, and weaves discussion and daily practice into a schedule of meditation in the Sri Vidya Shrine. Join us and experience just how rewarding a well-planned practice can be.

The schedule allows free time for practice, study, and contemplation; with options for instruction in the Himalayan Institute meditation methods, personal appointments with faculty, and appointments at PureRejuv.

Highlights include:
  • Instruction, practice, and benefits of bandhas, kriyas, and mudras
  • Introduction to granthis (“knots”) associated with key centers on physical, mental, and subtle levels and how to work with them
  • Using tantric anatomy of the subtle body to practice ujjayi, bhramari, bhastrika, surya bhedi, and nadi shodhana pranayamas
  • How to move beyond ego awareness
  • Moving toward samadhi: uniting and stabilizing the breath, prana, and mind
