$54.00 A Dive into the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Shiva Samhita, and the Gheranda Samhita

While some of today’s yoga practitioners have read The Hatha Yoga Pradipika , not many even know about the Shiva Samhita or the Gherand Samhita . Considered the most detailed original descriptions of postures, breath practices, symbolic hand gestures and energy locks, these writings are also full of contradictions and seemingly bizarre instructions. Even still, they offer us important insights into the traditional practices and purposes of Hatha Yoga.

3 Yoga Alliance CEUs available; This workshop is part of Lighthouse's Hatha Yoga Teacher Training and our Going Deeper Yoga immersion program.

Tara Lemerise

Tara Lemerise teaches the time-honored philosophy and practice of yoga in an accessible and joyful way. Registered with Yoga Alliance at ERYT-200/RYT-500, Tara has been teaching yoga philosophy, movement, and meditation since 2005. She has over 7,700 hours of teaching experience.

According to Tara, there is nothing to “fix” with yoga. Instead, there are only more opportunities to understand and be more fully present to our separate and together experiences. She is known for offering clear and helpful instruction to students at all levels and makes the wisdom of yoga feel relevant and relatable.

Tara’s classes include action-based instructions in asana that are a result of study of anatomy, kinesiology and creative movement. In addition, Tara provides plenty of opportunities for stillness and contemplation in her classes, which are deeply influenced by her study and practice of Restorative Yoga.
