About The Event

This first session of this online workshop will begin with a lecture on subtle anatomy. In this lecture you will learn how prana manifests in the microcosm of the body and the macrocosm of the cosmos. We will cover how prana moves through the subtle pathways, called nadis, and is given predisposition by life force centers, called chakras. The purpose and practice of pranic valves or locks called bandhas will also be covered. The remaining four sessions will employ pranayama and the pranic model of asana to put this information into practice. This workshop is best suited to students with at least a year of consistent practice.

Props: two blankets, one block and a belt and, if possible, supplemented with a chair and sandbag 

Kim Schwartz was introduced to eastern philosophy as a child and began studying yoga in 1971 at age 18. In 1981 he met his Guru and began more formal studies in the yoga sutras and other aspects of yoga philosophy. Around that time he was also introduced to the Iyengar system of asana practice. In 1985 he was certified to teach yoga through the Temple of Kriya yoga. He was ordained a Swami in the Kriya lineage in 1986. He has taught ongoing yoga classes, teachers training programs and workshops here and abroad since that time.Though asana and pranayama have become primary disciplines, the philosophy of yoga is still at the heart of his practice and teaching. Kim is registered with Yoga Alliance as eRYT-500 and YACEP.
