This course details these vital energy centers along the vertebral column that houses nerve bundles thought to be “small brains.”

The first day is an introduction to the entire chakra system plus a study and practice of the first and second chakras. We focus on the connection of the legs to the pelvis and sacrum. The sacrum is the center of gravity in the body and is home to the reproductive organs and the kundalini. We practice movements to open the hips and mobilize the body’s deep life force from the base of the spine.​

Prajna Yoga: Tias & Surya Little

Prajna Yoga makes its home in the foothills of Santa Fe, New Mexico, at the founders’ home, Tias and Surya Little, where they have lived since 1997. After directing local yoga studios for 11 years, Tias and Surya established Prajna Yoga in 2004 to integrate yoga discipline with contemplative practice and study. They built a retreat center that provides a serene setting for students to deepen their practice and studies. The Prajna Yoga Temple, handcrafted with the aesthetic of Japanese temple design, is an exquisite facility to support students who want to explore the healing arts of yoga.

This course is closed for enrollment.


Being all inclusive is a central tenet of Prajna Yoga. Diversity makes our sangha (community) all the more dynamic and creative. Our culture of inclusion enables us to better learn, grow, and thrive. Like a mala strung from many beads, our community finds beauty and strength from the unity of each unique individual.

Study with Tias & Surya

Deeply experienced and spiritual teachers, Tias and Surya honor the traditions of yoga and while bringing a holistic approach that will awaken your mind, body, and spirit. A pathway of intimate classes, retreats, and training born from deep practice. Surya and Tias get to know each yogi individually, guiding them in their aspirations and awakening their practice for years to come.

The Path of Yoga

We believe that yoga is a pathway that begins in the outer layers of the body and mind and navigates inward to the mystical, subtle, and rarely seen interior. In a process that requires sensitivity and inner listening, we explore the sheaths of connective tissue, muscle, and bone in order to bring about greater wakefulness, luminosity, and space within.
