The Fluid Yoga 300hr training approach is based on the belief that we are able to best serve our students and community when we ourselves feel grounded, whole and content.
Fluid Mind II dives deep into the waters of personal transformation through meditation. Students explore Vajrayana Buddhism’s teachings on Tantra, or continuity–often cited as an accelerated vehicle for enlightenment. In this Module, we identify feminine and masculine energies within Tantric thought, and examine the transformation of craving, desire and negativity into positive karmas.
Fluid Spirit II In this advanced Module, we focus first on understanding our spiritual practice through the the lens of Vajrayana, then examine the complexity of emptiness–what the Dalai Lama calls “the true nature of things and events.” Discussions will explore theories of reality and being to guide students toward a deeper understanding of the ultimate truth known as pure wisdom. Though topics may at first seem esoteric, Fluid Spirit II works to strengthen our connection to others through compassion and love.
