Fire (agni) is a metaphor for spiritual transformation, the force that transmutes the unknown into the known, obstacles into awakenings, the mundane into the sacred. Fire practices point towards the final destination of yoga - experiential knowledge of the Mystery. No dogmatic lectures here - just possibilities to be tested with first-hand experience.
This theme comes last in our yearly curriculum, as it draws on the physical and mental stability of Earth and Moon practices, and the energetic expansion and sensitivity that comes from Sun practice. Classes will include more opportunities for self-reflection and longer (5-10 minute) meditations.

Because our space can only hold a few students with social distancing measures, despite a move to Phase 4, we have decided to continue holding all classes online through the Zoom platform. You can attend through your phone, tablet or laptop. The procedure is fairly simple:
If you'd like to attend a class but cannot make it during the livestream, we can send you a link to view the recording, good for 7 days. Register as normal, then email us to say you'd like to receive the recording.
Members now get access to a video archive of our best classes. For just $105/month, you can take all the classes you want, any time you want... It's a great way to motivate yourself to practice regularly and support our studio. Learn the details here.
We are also offering a selection of prerecorded audio practices available to stream or download here.
