about this event

From Darkness to LIGHT: Get ready to deepen, inspire, uplift and transform your yoga practice, teaching and life!

Through their decades of dedicated study, practice and teaching, Kate Duyn and Jasmine Tarkeshi, Lotus FLow legends, will lead you on a powerful, practical and creative journey of deep, devotional and joyful practice, yogic study and self discovery to uplift and heal ourselves to become leavening agents in our world! This exciting training will bring to life Yoga’s rich teachings through the lense of mythology and storytelling and embodying the wisdom through the chakras, mantras and mudras (spiritual hand gestures that tell stories through sacred sign language) Perfect for yoga teachers looking for inspiration and wanting to share an enlivened and transformative practice with their students or for yogis who want to experience more depth, joy, and freedom through their practice of yoga. 

Inspired by the symbol of the lotus flower emerging from the mud and the infinite spiritual Yogic myths and stories of the powers light overcoming darkness, this intensive will be a rich and soulful exploration through the chakras (energy centers in the body) and the awakening of super powers that exist within us to move from darkness to light. Through self inquiry (svadyaya) we will write our own his/her-stories and personalize Ganesha’s origin story, Laksmi being churned from the ocean of milk, Hanuman’s legendary leap and many more to teach authentically and honor Yoga’s roots with love and respect.

By awakening the qualities of our roots, creativity, courage, compassion, honest expression, intuition and liberation we will study, practice and teach yoga as the art of living mindfully and soulfully even in midst of suffering by integrating mind, body, spirit and action to help us live more fully and in harmony with ourselves with our lives and our world.
