Spring is the time of year for growth, regeneration, rebirth and renewal . Yet in the midst of a global pandemic, when death looms around us, how can we use this opportunity to evolve on the path? This class investigates the classic story from the Katha Upanisad where death is the teacher and instructs a most profound teaching on yoga. Read the short story that features a dialogue between death and a young boy and meet with Tias to investigate the yoga teachings on discrimination, the transitory nature of the senses, meditation on the heart, and connection to the timeless Self. Tias provides overview of the Upanisad and elucidates selected passages from the story. Then in a “roundtable” format, we discuss and share how each of us can actualize the yoga teachings at this time.
Note: THIS EVENT HAS PASSED. The recording is available for you from Tias's live webinar on April , 2020 should you wish to purchase. Thank you!
Death as the Teacher: Message from Tias
Join us in this unique course!
Meet Tias Little
Tias has a unique and skillful teaching style, enabling students to find greater depth of understanding and awareness in their practice. His approach is inter-disciplinary, passionate, intelligent, and insightful. Tias synthesizes years of study in classical yoga, Sanskrit, Buddhist studies, Somatic practices, anatomy, massage and trauma healing. Tias began studying the work of B.K.S Iyengar in 1984 and lived in Mysore, India in 1989 studying Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with Pattabhi Jois. His teaching includes precision of alignment, anatomical detail, and meditative awareness.
Prajna Yoga: Tias & Surya Little
Tias and Surya’s collaboration as a husband and wife team is remarkably fresh, innovative and inspiring. While Tias is more verbal and conceptual, Surya’s strength lies in her ability to touch the essence of each individual. They combine the magic of male and female energies, and their alchemy is transformative to students from so many different walks of life. Together they create a path that is at once wide open yet penetrating and progressive.
Be the Path
Prajna Yoga is a profound journey inward. We believe that yoga is a pathway that begins in the outer layers of body and mind and navigates inward to the mystical, subtle and rarely seen interior. We combine meditative practice with the power and grace of asana training.
Underlying our teaching is that we do not do poses for the sake of the pose, but for the quality of attention within the pose. Through yoga postures, dharma study, guided meditation, the yoga of sound, somatic awareness and dream work this is a practice that allows for unique, personal transformation.
