“If you have a body, you are entitled to the full range of feelings. It comes with the package.” – Anne Lamott
Join me for a weekend of five independent modules correlating to the five elements. This Immersion is open to anyone interested in bringing new possibilities to their practice, especially teachers, and anyone interested in learning more about Pranakriya style of yoga and it’s Teacher Training Programs.
Fri 6p-9p – Part I – Your Body as EARTH – Asana and Gravity
The earth is the foundation of every asana, and this module explores how to interact better with the earth and it’s gravity. Our evening practice will include identifying each muscle and bone, plus create safe movements for every joint.
Sat 9a-12:30p – Part II – Your Body as SPACE – Meditation in Motion
Everything about our body is in motion, pulsation, spanda, and every movement sends a message to our brain.. What if meditation was about learning to better perceive the messages from your body? This module includes a vinyasa practice to explore meditation as a tool for finding more safe and stable possibilities.
Sat 2:30p – 6p – Part III – Your Body as AIR – Pranayamas #1-#10
Without air and breathe, our body would survive barely a few moments. This module explores the theory behind pranayama practices, while learning 10 different techniques to bring to your practice.
Sun 9a-12:30p – Part IV – Your Body as FIRE – The Deeper Practices
The Pranakriya Yoga practice unites the rituals of Asana, Pranayama and Meditation to create deep experiences of oneness, stillness and clarity. This will be a longer yoga practice,and a deep dive into Pranakriya Yoga. All levels are welcome – please practice to your capacity.
Sun 2:30p-6p – Part V – Your Body as WATER – Integrating Wholeness
Pranakriya Yoga asks practitioners to embody the experiences that come out of our practice, and to integrate the experiences so we can experience greater levels of aliveness. This module will explore some elements of yoga philosophy and will end with a pranayama and yoga Nidra practice.

I’m really excited to offer the Embodiment training in Atlanta this year on March 16-18 at Santosha Studio. My goal for this program is to share with you how I am currently synthesizing what I have practiced and studied since my yoga journey began in 1989. There are five modules, and you can attend any and all of them!
Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts offers teacher trainings, retreats, classes and workshops that explore the ancient practices of Tantra Hatha Yoga. We encourage all students to practice with focus at a level to both humble and inspire their lives. We work to foster an open and accepting community of growth, healing and transformation that invites all practitioners to listen deeply and to respectfully follow their own soul’s dharma. Our mission is to support humanity, become more fully alive and live attuned to Prana.

Statement of Faith
If we are somehow endowed with participation of some kind of divinity, then we are indeed special, and should treat each other with the respect and dignity this demands.
If, on the other hand, we are the accidental outcome of blind natural processes in a cosmos that is indifferent to us being here at all, then we are indeed special, and should treat each other with a tenderness and respect befitting such serendipitous surprises.
