Shadow Yoga: Kartikeya Mandalam

With Scott Blossom & Chandra Easton

We will gather at Tara Mandala Retreat center to refine our practice of all three of the Preludes Forms with a special emphasis on Kartikeya Mandalam. This advanced form consists of demanding stance and waist work, removes marma from the chest, shoulders, and neck and prepares the body for the primary seated asanas and inversions.

There will be two practices per day in the early morning and evening, as well as midday time for study and discussion. It is required that you have learned Balakrama and Chaya Sanchalanam prelude consistently to qualify to register.

Tara Mandala is an international Vajrayana Buddhist community with its home base at 7,500 feet above sea level in the mountains of Pagosa Springs, Colorado.  It is guided by Lama Tsultrim Allione, author of Women of Wisdom,  Feeding Your Demons, and Wisdom Rising.

In a chaotic and stressful world, Tara Mandala Retreat Center offers refuge and renewal. Bordered by the San Juan National Forest and Southern Ute Tribal Land, the retreat center is on 700 acres of rolling hills and meadows adorned with many varieties of wild flowers, ponds, and forests. The land itself is a mandala with a stunning peak in the middle surrounded by four valleys. Retreat cabins are scattered across the landscape, and at its heart is the extraordinary three-story mandala Tara temple.
