In the ancient Tantric Hatha Yoga traditions, yogis developed and practiced asanas as part of a biologically-based, spiritual technology. They practiced specific breathing patterns, internal focal points, and visualizations for the purpose of inducing spiritual experiences. They raised their biological energy (prana) to very high states, causing transformation in one’s perception and experience of the Self. Most ancient yoga texts, including the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, were based on these experiences of altered states of consciousness. In this program we will use Swami Kripalu’s approach to asana to explore lesser-known techniques that can be used to enrich the practice of yoga.
