Tend the Fire & Transform Your Practice: Agni Sara, The Fire Within - A Master Class at Sonic Yoga

When: Thursday, July 19, 7:45-9:45pm 
Where: Sonic Yoga - 944 8th Avenue, NYC

Tap into your inner fire this summer in Rebecca’s signature master class, Tend the Fire & Transform Your Practice: Agni Sara, The Fire Within. This 2-hour master class is designed to introduce you to the elements of agni sara, arguably one of the most important and indispensable master practices of Hatha Yoga. Agni sara is a yoga technique that combines elements of both pranayama and asana practice. The term comes from the Sanskrit, agni, which means “fire,” and sara, which means “energy,” “essence” or “cascade”.
 
In this class Rebecca will discuss the physiological, energetic and psychological benefits that you will gain from a daily practice of agni sara. We will also consider how this practice works synergistically with your meditation practice to bring stability and strength into your daily life. Even in the heat of summer, agni sara helps to increase vitality, provide steadiness and reduce anxiety.
 
After discussion, Rebecca will guide you in a session designed to teach the elements and methods involved in the practice of agni sara: a series of warming movements, strengthening and activation of the bandhas, as well as breathing and kriya techniques. To further demonstrate the benefits of these practices, you will move directly into a seated meditation practice. We end with a delicious, supported savasana that allows absorption and integration of all that you have learned.
