We’ll begin with the MogaDao Hieretic Stance Series, which is a series of energy cultivation and expression stances that are the sacred human “architectures” of a great width of psychospiritual qualities and archetypes. From there we’ll move into MogaDao Cosmological Qigong forms that connect the human body to the cosmic energies and forces. With that extraordinary energetic beginning as our physical and psychospiritual foundation, we will transition into the practice of MogaDao Yoga.
MogaDao Yoga is the integration of classical hatha yoga with 5-Element Theory from Traditional Chinese Medicine. Students will learn the correspondences, unique to MogaDao Yoga, between the 5 Elements and specific anatomy within yoga asana. We’ll practice the MogaDao Sun Salutations which are comprehensive 5-Element practices in and of themselves. We’ll practice both MogaDao 5-Element Vinyasa and Hatha styles. Students will also learn to “medicate” themselves in yoga asana, physically and psychospiritually, much as a practitioner of qigong medicates oneself in qigong forms. MogaDao Yoga is characterized by exquisite precision and heightened spiritual awareness, and what Master Zhenzan Dao calls “qigong consciousness” within yoga asana. Each asana, and the transitions between asana, are seamless containers and conduits of subtle energy. MogaDao Yoga is strength building, graceful, and spiritually comprehensive.
