Fire (agni) is a metaphor for spiritual transformation, the force that transmutes the unknown into the known, obstacles into awakenings, the mundane into the sacred. Fire practices point towards the final destination of yoga - experiential knowledge of the Mystery.  No dogmatic lectures here - just possibilities to be tested with first-hand experience.

This theme comes last in our yearly curriculum, as it draws on the physical and mental stability of Earth and Moon practices, and the energetic expansion and sensitivity that comes from Sun practice.  Classes will include more opportunities for self-reflection and longer (5-10 minute) meditations.
