Body Reveals with Julia

4 Weekends, Apr-June 2022
Online and in-person attendance available

This course is open to all who want to deepen their understanding beyond the common knowledge of muscles and bones, and weave Tantric wisdom into an enhanced study of the intelligence of the body. 

Wisdom from all ages reminds us that the truths of the universe are equally alive in our individual bodies. This is why the yoga sages guide us to know the absolute through the experience of our own Self. It is a process not of memorizing facts or scriptures, but of realizing the fundamental truths are present and supporting us in every moment. In this course we will follow two tracks inward to have this realization for ourselves.

The science of Physiology- a holistic look at the organic processes and functioning that take place in our living body

A journey into Tantra's scriptural texts- Yoga's sacred, revealed wisdom that awakens awareness of the reality of the Universe within the body.

Each weekend, we will explore these two learning methods through a combination of lecture, discussion, guided meditations plus two 60 minute asana classes.
