Pleasure Point Yoga, Santa Cruz, CA
For centuries, Indian tradition has recognized and expounded upon the fundamental truth: that everything is vibration.
Over many years the examination of vibration not simply as a phenomenon but as a vehicle through which the human being can experience connection to the deeper pulse and rhythm of life and nature was refined and transmitted. This celebration of the vibrational power of the cosmos reaches its zenith in the Tantras, whose texts and practices are primarily concerned with how to experience, harmonize with and connect to vibration.
This vibration they call Spanda; in the Tantras, vibration is consciousness, it is the pulse of breath, and it is the way to the heart.
In āsana, vibration manifests as the pulse that inherently exists within 'static' poses that opens, strengthens, and connects us to center. In meditation, vibration is the calm and tranquil mind. Silence itself is a vibration.
This weekend immersion explores & celebrates the profoundly beautiful Indian teachings on vibration. We'll delve into how they relate to our āsana & meditation practices, & our lives off the mat. Our time together will include asana, breathwork, meditation, chanting, singing, listening, & satsang.
