-Tantric Yoga Immersion

Tantric Yoga Immersion

Go beyond traditional yogic studies into the life-embracing, householder path of Tantric Yoga. Join Gina Minyard and Sarah Faircloth, long-time students and practitioners of their traditions – Shaivite Tantra (or Kashmir Shaivism) and Shri Vidya Tantra – for a complimentary and mutually informative Intensive Immersion experience. Each weekend will include texts and teachings, metaphor and myth, Tantric yoga practice in all of its dimensions, and interactive exploration, contemplation, and sharing. These two Immersion weekends are part of the BODY of LIGHT 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training, and are open to the public. This offering is unlike anything in Atlanta, and is a must for all curious seekers and devotees of life. All are welcome!

Tantric Yoga Immersion Weekend 1 with Gina Minyard
Mar 3-5, 2017


Shaivite Tantric Yoga Philosophy Through the Study of the Shiva Sutras

The Shiva Sutras is the root text of Tantric Shaivism, also known as Kashmir Shaivism. This re-emerging lineage and treasure text is the source of the teachings of embodied liberation, open-eyed mysticism, the householder path, and ultimately modern hatha yoga. We’ll contrast this text’s teachings with the more well known Yoga Sutras’ renunciatory and dualistic idealogy. More than philosophy, this is a text of your own deepest reality, of the highest wisdom, and how to navigate the experience of bondage that leads to ultimate freedom. These understandings are meant to be experienced, and are ultra-relevant and supportive to the modern yogi seeking spirituality and practices that expands and unfolds the inner AND outer dimensions of life. This Advanced Immersion weekend is open to the public for all those looking for a deep dive into their Self, into Reality!

Tantric Yoga Immersion Weekend 2 with Sarah Faircloth
Mar 31-April 2


Shri VidyaTantric Yoga Philosophy and Mythology in the Fashion of Oral Tradition

Shri Vidya literally means Auspicious Wisdom. Through the lens of this Goddess-centered yoga, we receive the world just as it offers itself. We contrast benign Lalita Tripurasundari (Shri) with the inimitable Kali. We will chant some of her thousand names as delineated in the beautiful Sahasranama text. Shri Vidya picks up the yoga tradition thread where Kashmir Shaivism leaves off. It’s the rich soil where concepts such as Karma-Lila, Dharma-Maya, and Guru-Kula come into their fullest meanings. We will also explore Rasa theory. These sublime teachings and practices refine our vision of what it means to be modern yoginis and yogis. What better time than this year to enter a goddess-oriented, receptive, generous and daily life-view!
