BEYOND ASANA

Led by Gianna Purcell

Saturday, July 13th from 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Lincoln Park (2736 N. Clark)

$45 in advance; $50 at door

Working with the ancient art of tantric kriya, pranayama, meditation, and mantra, this workshop will allow you to take the focus of your practice beyond the physical form to explore the powers of connecting with your subtle body to promote profound shifts within.  We will start by purifying the physical body and then will diligently dive deeper to purify the mind and the energy body. Through different concentration techniques explored in this workshop, we will unleash the siddhi or our spiritual and supernatural powers that every ordinary person operating at human capacity can tap into.
