Agni Sara: Core Practice & Refinements

Agni Sara: Core Practice & Refinements

Luke Ketterhagen

Agni sara (fire essence), a master practice of hatha yoga, is a systematic contraction and release that allows you to directly impact the internal organs of cleansing and detoxification, and reduce stress by activating your parasympathetic nervous system. Swami Rama used to tell students that if you only have time for one asana, do agni sara—it’s that comprehensive and thorough as a standalone practice. In this workshop with Luke Ketterhagen, you will learn how to harness the fire at the abdomen while waking up the body’s inner intelligence. Discover the profound benefits, both physical and spiritual, of a regular agni sara practice.
