The Bliss of Breath

Ty Landrum

Friday, February 23rd – Sunday, February 25th

Ty Landrum is the director of the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado. He is an international exponent of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, which he explores under the direction of his mentor, Richard Freeman. With a PhD in Philosophy, Ty has a special touch for explaining the theory of yoga with color and creativity. His passion as a teacher is to share the brilliance of yoga with anyone who wants to learn.

Hatha Yoga works with opposing forces of breath and invites these forces to align. When the breath aligns, the experience of the body opens up, revealing endless patterns of sensation. The practice is to be present with these patterns, allowing them to unfold in the open expanse of our awareness. Through this practice, we give ourselves space, and we allow our minds to breathe. Our thoughts and feelings begin to expand and contract in an open flow of consciousness. This is the beginning of Hatha Yoga.

In this workshop, we explore some techniques from the Hatha Yoga tradition to bring this experience alive—moving our bodies from the inside, following internal currents of breath, balancing subtle patterns of sensation, and softening ever more deeply into the postures themselves. Through these techniques, the exploration of embodiment can become a profoundly sensual experience, releasing our tensions, quickening our senses, and reconnecting us to the inherent bliss of deep breathing.

Surya Namaskar
Friday, February 23 | 6 - 8 PM

Surya Namskar means “Salutations to the Sun”. In the context of yoga, the Sun is not only the celestial body that gives us warmth and daylight, but the radiant center of the human body, where our vital forces converge. In Surya Namaskar, we are propitiating to this center, inviting our vital forces to rise up from the altar of the pelvis and burn away the sediment of our conditioning, giving us insight.

Breathing Into Alignment | Backbends and Torsions
Saturday, February 24 | 9 - 11:30am

As our practice matures, so does our sense of alignment. What begins as a struggle for postural perfection becomes an endless exploration of embodied form. In this workshop, we explore a simple but profound method of postural alignment, based on five distinct patterns of breath and movement that recur throughout the Ashtanga system.

Philosophy: The Feminine and the Sublime
Saturday, February 24, 2018 | 4 - 5 PM

In Tantric philosophy, the feminine is the principle of creation. This principle is abundant, excessive and overwhelms us when it overflows. In this talk, we explores the nature of the feminine, and the possibility of relating to the feminine intimately, through the Myth of Sati, “she who is.”
