Robert A.F. Thurman

Enjoy an immersive, transformational yoga retreat from the comfort of you own home.  Professor Robert Thurman and Michele Loew offer this 10 day practice immersion in meditation and yoga to bring you inspiration and peace. This will be the live transmission over Zoom of our Dec. 3-13 in-person course at Menla. It is perfect for those wanting to be transported into an intensive retreat while in a stay at home setting.This Immersion can be taken alone and is open to all new comers, or as a supplemental practice immersion to students registered in our online Vajra Teacher Training. Taken alone, credit for teacher training will not be given without the 9 month course, but it will nevertheless be a rich exploration of Tibetan and Indic yogas.
This course is intended to be more experiential and less theoretical. Dr. Thurman will lecture on the Buddha’s science, but also give more time for meditation and transmission as we read and chant the Flower Ornament Sutra, Manjurshri nama-samgiti, & Shantideva’s bodhicaryavatara.Michele will teach excerpts from the Bhagavad Gita, Hatha Pradipika, and share daily Hatha Yoga, focusing on form and alignment for teachers or students wanting a deeper look into physical and subtle body form. Pranayama, Tibetan Yoga practice of Nejang, & Yoga Nidra will be held daily.  Asana focus will be on Backbends, Twists, hips.
