"All roads start from the body and lead back to it. The body is the road."
~Edmond Jabès, Egyptian Poet


June 19-23, 2019 | Prajna Yoga; Santa Fe, NM
200hr Teacher Training, From The Ground Up

This session is taught by Djuna Mascall and explores the foundational teachings of the yoga practice with an emphasis on how the feet are “the foundation to the temple of the body”. Progress on the path depends on strong legs and deep breath. Students build stability in their legs through standing poses that spontaneously lead to the lift of the yoga bandhas – mula and uddiyana bandhas. To open the heart-mind, we will cultivate loving kindness (metta) and hone the essentials of mindfulness training.


June 24-28, 2019 | Prajna Yoga; Santa Fe, NM
200hr Teacher Training, The Fluid Body

The body is 75 percent water, and as we age, the body slowly loses its hydrating capacity. This session is taught by Djuna Mascall and explores flexibility through fluidity. We will investigate:

  • How tissue hydration is essential to our vitality by directing blood flow in the yoga postures

  • How heart, lungs and diaphragm drive the body fluids

In our study, we include myths from the yoga tradition that describe the curative power of water.


September 20, 2019 | Spirit Rock Meditation Center; Marin, CA
From Anxiety To Calm Presence

This retreat will offer Dharma teachings on understanding anxiety and cultivating self compassion. We will connect to the body through somatic movement, yoga postures, and breath work. Our practice will offer techniques to ground the nervous system and create a container of safety and support to allow us to meet all that arises. The yoga sessions will be both dynamic and nourishing for ease and resilience.
