This tantrik lineage is birthed from an ancient matriarchal tribe of North Indian yoga masters whose philosophy and practices informed Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism. It is integral, alive, and limitless. It has been passed down to us directly through the grace of a trinity of contemporary tantrik revelators: Parvathi Nanda Nath; Guru-ji Amritananda Nath; and the Dalai Lama.
Shakti flow asana practice draws primarily from the marriage of a trinity of contemporary flow yoga revolutionaries: Shiva Rea, Jivamukti Yoga and Asa Dustin. We will explore pinnacle practices, the culmination of centuries of yoga philosophy, spirituality, and science.
Join us for this opportunity to be fully immersed in the evolutionary art of shakti flow yoga
Shakti is dynamic, creative, and nurturing power. Flow yoga is the linking of breath, movement, and elevated intention. The shakti flow awakens our inherent potential to expand into intuitive wisdom and embody it as compassionate grace. Shakti flow yoga classes focus on the union of breath with movement and the relationship between stillness and flow. Practitioners are encouraged to allow the internal flows of energy, stoked by the movement of the body, to inform the authenticity of the alignment of the poses.The wisdom of this lineage is gleaned through disciplined practice of meditation, mandtra, and asana.
The training will be led by Asa Dustin, by Licensed Massage Therapist Ray Conner, and Licensed Physical Therapist Liesl Hasenfuss, and High Priestess Shivani Devi All four are advanced certified shakti flow yoga guides and practitioners of Sri Vidya Kaula Tantra in the tradition of Guruji Amritananda Nath Saraswasti.
Asa is founder and principal instructor of At Om Yoga Studio since 2002. Asa has completed teacher trainings with Jivamukti Yoga, Shiva Rea, and Parvathi Nanda Nath. He has studied extensively in India and the Far East in disciplines including Vipassana meditation, Vajrayana Buddhism and Sri Vidya Tantra. He holds a BA in yoga studies from the California Institute of Integral Studies. This will be the twelfth yoga teacher training that Asa has guided.

There will be consistent focus on creating and holding sacred space. Shakti flow yoga classes are a sanctuary and a laboratory for the exploration of the individual’s particular relationship to the poses and flows of yoga. As shakti flow yoga guides we encourage the practitioner to align the pose from the inside out, their own felt experience informing the authenticity of embodiment. We encourage the perpetual sensation of the safest most effective posture possible. We nurture evolutionary potential.
This sadhana immersion explores the nature of consciousness through Sri Vidya Kaula Tantra. Within this scientific and spiritual system is a myriad of fascinating and effective practices designed to awaken enlightened aspects of being.
Daily meditation practices initiated during the training days will increase intimacy with the subtle body and expand consciousness.
