There will be a thorough exploration of  tools to unblock resistance through kundalini Kriyas, meditation and pranayama techniques, experiences with complimentary modalities and discussion of cuing and language that leads students into a more complete experience in their Practice.  This week will be a laboratory  for teachers and serious Practitioners to reap the benefits of this work-merging body and mind to move us closer to Spirit and Bliss!
