Session III: The Subtle Body
Daily schedule: 8:30am-5:30pm (45 hours)
*The last day of training (July 13th) ends at 1:00pm
The pathway into the subtle body involves practice for the delicate structures of the throat, neck, cranium and brain. In yoga practice, the brain and sensory organs must be carefully protected and drawn inward. Session III presents ways to posturally balance the skull efficiently on top of the spine and to mindfully create a “psychic shield” to protect and empower spiritual awareness.
