Atha Yoganusasanam – Yoga Sutra 1:1

Now begins the practice of Yoga

Reignite your passion for your practice and teaching through practicing and teaching Yoga as Embodied Philosophy!

Step out of your comfort zone and explore weaving the ancient wisdom of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras through your teaching and practice by bringing yoga’s timeless teaching to life through the lens of Lotus Flows’ dynamic and devotional dance and discipline of creative sequencing.

Jasmine Tarkeshi and Kate Duyn will bring the wisdom and creativity from their years of personal practice, study and teaching to facilitate a space for disciplined practice: Tapas, svadyaya: self study and inquiry and Isvarapranidhana: surrender and service. You will be inspired and initiated into becoming a more confident, creative and compassionate teacher as you deepen your devotion to your personal Sadhana and self study and be encouraged to teach and practice through the lens of your own lived experience.

This intensive and 300 hour advanced module focuses on the architecture of Lotus Flow and allowing your personal expression of asana and Dharma of the Sutras to shine through. The Yoga Sutras are time tested recipes that work, while our Lotus Flow Vinyasa allows us to throw in whatever we have in the cosmic kitchen of the moment and create something new. Together, we can anchor our practice and teaching to integrate both sides of our brain towards Unity.

We will fully explore the philosophy of Vinyasa Karma, wise progression, in sequencing towards a peak or “Maha Pose". We will start each day getting physical, exploring the framework of Lotus Flow through the Chakra system and physical anatomy. The afternoon lectures and practice teaching sessions will include the practice of svadyaya or self-study, as we delve into The Yoga Sutras, yoga’s darshana and the essential text that accompany these luminous manifestations. This timeless wisdom is the teacher's anchor, and can be a mirror for self-reflection. Building a personal connection and deeper relationship with these guiding principles helps express these universal teachings honestly and authentically through you. Personal contemplation, group discussion, practice and teaching will support you during this 3 day as you learn to incorporate yoga’s fundamental nature into your own sadhana, teaching, and life. We will also cover topics including creating authentic themes and Dharma talks, threading the theme, the use of music, mudras, movement and mantra in your classes. Discover how these tools will amplify your classes while inspiring your teaching.

Join Jasmine Tarkeshi, Co-Creator of the signature Chakra based Lotus Flow TM Vinyasa Yoga, on a Journey through sequencing and practicing through the chakras!

One of the standout qualities of the beloved practice of Lotus Flow, co-created in 1999, is how balanced and complete one feels through the devotion, dance and discipline of Lotus sequencing. This is because of the graceful and conscious movement through the 7 fold chakra system, the ancient Indian healing system and bridge between our physical, mental, emotional, spiritual selves as well as to world around us.

This sequencing is known as Vinyasa Krama, as developed by Sri Krishnamachariya which means " wise progression " where each asana is a preparation for the next, as each chakra's opening prepares for the next level of consciousness. As we nourish each part of ourselves from root to crown, with breath, movement and intention, we awaken to our spiritual anatomy through our physical anatomy and unlock and unblock our creative potential and heal and transform. Join us on this journey of discovery and self-exploration that balances every part of our selves and our lives and integrates mind, body and spirit to help us live more fully. Perfect for yoga teachers looking for inspiration and wanting to share this enlivened and transformative practice with their students or anyone who wants to experience more depth, joy, and freedom through their practice of yoga.

Through this intensive with Jasmine you will learn to teach and practice yoga through the lens of the chakra system and includes:
-A thorough and detailed exploration of the chakra system and all they correlate with including; location, organs, glands, elements, senses, colors, sounds, symbolism, mythology, shadow and universal rights as it relates to social justice.
-Basic Lotus Flow sequencing based on moving from the root chakra up to the crown for an integrated and balanced practice.
-Creating classes for each of the seven chakras including, Yogic themes, Mantras, mudras, pranayama, asana and meditation for each one.
-How to work with and heal chakra imbalances through movements, sound, food, scent, crystals
-Journaling prompts for personal contemplation

at Soul Tribe Studio in Australia!

Join Jasmine Tarkeshi, Founder of Lotusland Yoga SF (previously Laughing Lotus Yoga Centers) and Co-Creator of Lotus Flow TM Vinyasa yoga for a 5 day, 25 Hour intensive, training and retreat to Soul Tribe Yoga in Batemans Bay, Austraiia! Let’s reunite in conscious community and soak in the nectar of the teachings and practices of Yoga’s inspiring and transformative spiritual text, the Bhagavad Gita and bring them to life in a personal way as we journey through the Cakras though movement, mantra, Mudra and Meditation.

Translated as the beloved Song of the Beloved, the Gita's power, poetry and wisdom has had an enormous influence on millions of change makers, truth seekers worldwide and the beauty of it's message has inspired all who have been blessed to come in contact with it's mysterious power: From Gandhi, who referred to the Gita as his mother to T.S. Eliot, Emerson and Thoreau who remarked, "In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita, in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial.”

The Gita has the power to arouse the cosmic warrior within us all to fight our own inner and the outer battles that are upon us with courage and devotion. Armed with the knowledge of all the paths of yoga and guided by our charioteer Sri Krishna, the power of Love within us all.

This intensive with be broken down into 5, 5 Hour days and will revolve around some of the major themes of The Gita and 7 major Cakras. Through Asana, Pranayama, Mudra and Mantra along with journaling and personal inquiry, group discussion and teaching, habit exploration and reforming we will invoke personal change and action, transforming our inner dialogue and outer practices. Together we will create a safe and brave space to look at exploring deeply rooted conditioning about who we are, outlining practical ways in which we can use our practice and teaching to create inner and outer change. Through exploring yogic concepts and tradition, this intersection challenges us to look deeper into both the universality of the human experience as well as its important differences. Through compassionate awareness of both our unity and our separateness can lead to greater equity and justice in our world.
