Part One: Moon Practice: Centering and Balancing
Activation of the lunar force creates healing, peace and wisdom. These practices stimulate the nurturing energy that allows us to remain calm in the midst of turbulence, steady in the midst of change. They also lead to mastery of mind and are key to awakening hidden intelligence and intuition.
Part Two: Sun Practice: Awakening the Force of Transformation
We focus on the approach to practice that links us to and allows us to master prana, or life force. Sun practices increase vitality, subtle awareness, passion, and power. They unlock the subtle forces that lead to the final stages and highest goals of practice. “Solar” energy leads to shining, both internally and externally and is the foundation for the final and most powerful stage of practice.
Part Three: Fire Practice: Discovering and Living the Ultimate Aim of Practice
The ultimate aim of Yoga practice is to awaken our inner fire - the force of Spirit. Activation of the subtle force of fire leads to extraordinary perception and living. Practice focuses on generating the energy that dissolves inertia and the final obstacles to the highest state of Yoga.
