Class Description:

"Surya dwells at the root of the navel and chandra at the root of the palate. Man succumbs to death because surya swallows up the ambrosia. That process by which the surya is raised up and the chandra is carried lower down is called, Viparita Karani Mudra, which is kept secret in all the tantras." Gheranda Samhita.

In this class we will explore the action of inverting using many different inversions and their variations.

Duration: 2.5 hour(s)
