This course will focus on the yantras and the pranayama of the third series, the Secret Breathing for Directing the Prana into the Central Channel. We will extensively practice additional breathing techniques along with the preliminaries of Yantra Yoga to prepare for the movements and the pranayama, and we can offer simple modifications for the yantras, so don't be afraid. The 3rd series is a wonderful series and is not too physically challenging.
The third series works with the 5 emotions, it is very beneficial!
Movements and functions:
Bow - To eliminate obstacles related to being dominated by attachment.
Half Moon - To eliminate obstacles related to being dominated by hatred.
Lion - To eliminate obstacles related to being dominated by ignorance. (Good for students of Santi Maha Sangha)
Vulture - To eliminate obstacles related to being dominated by pride.
Triangle - To eliminate obstacles related to being dominated by jealousy.
Experience with the preliminary series of Yantra Yoga important. There will not be time to teach the preliminaries and they are essential for working with the later series and pranayamas.
