The Eightfold Path launched in the Spring of 2018 in Nosara, Costa Rica.
It began with the teaching of the first limb: YAMA
YAMA is known as the yoga of relationship. The teachings explore both our relationship to self and to the ever-changing world around us.
Each YAMA (there are 5) function as both a practice and as an embodied state of being. Kindness, truthfulness, generosity, care for vital energy and non-grasping are the core principles.
YAMA in its quintessence is a coherent state of love.
In March of 2019, The Eightfold Path continued with the second limb of yoga: NIYAMA. This limb focuses on personal observances and internal purification kriya yoga practices.
The art of yoga self-study
the yoga of contentment
Cleanliness (internal and external)
A practical path to surrender and receptivity to grace
Cultivation of internal heat for healing, transformation, and illumination
THE EIGHTFOLD PATH IS A TECHNOLOGY FREE RETREAT
NO PHONES | NO COMPUTERS | ALL NATURAL
WHAT IS TANTRIC HATHA YOGA
Tantric Hatha Yoga is an embodiment technology used to purify and strengthen the body, stabilize the heart/mind, and in time give rise to the dawning of higher awareness.
It is a practice of coming to see the unseen. To feel, sense and experience how energy moves through the body. As this texture becomes known, a path to intuitive knowing is revealed and insight into the nature of mind emerges.
From the conscious to the subconscious, the subconscious to the unconscious, and the unconscious to the sublime.
The tradition seeks to illuminate a path of exploration into the fabric of psyche and enable awareness to penetrate the substance of spirit and soul.
The practices leverage the body to awaken, refine and manage vital energetic intelligence through yoga postures, bandhas, mantra, meditation and breath work. The body’s energy is collected and directed in ways to create purposeful and specific states of consciousness.
To calm and stabilize the mind.
To awaken and vitalize the body.
To restore peace to the spirit.
The practices are designed to meet you where you are and are accessible to all levels.
