This talk at Wanderlust Colorado with Rod Stryker will discuss the three vital essences (prana, tejas, and ojas) provide guiding principles that allow us to approach Yoga as alchemy. These subtle forces are a basis to heal as well as transform body and mind. We overview these key yogic teachings of Ayurveda and the yoga practices that increase/balance each of the vital essences. This class involes chanting, a lecture and a guided meditation practice. This class is suitable for all levels.
