Ethos VII

The Human Totem: Yoga and the Breadth of Being

  • The Human Totem MogaDao Yoga Ethos Program Immersion is a training program for already established yoga teachers (or yoga practitioners of a most rare knowledge and experience from personal devotion to hatha yoga.) This is due to the fact that the scope of MogaDao Yoga is so vast, in terms of the anatomical and psychospiritual correspondences, in asana, that derive from Post-Daoist theory, that teaching the more fundamental aspects of yoga cannot be the focus of a teacher training program that shares itself with seven other Ethea. Instead, this immersion is for advanced practitioners and teachers who have a strong hatha base, who wish, from that base, to transform, refine, and spiritualize their yoga, seeing asana through the lens of energetic and psychospiritual medicine, aesthetic harmony, and what Zhenevere Sophia Dao calls “qigong consciousness,” or the flow of energy that connects all asana in MogaDao Yoga.

  • All this is to say that we will build the necessity for the yoga immersions according to the need that manifests in time. It is worthwhile mentioning that in every Ethos Program there is a form or series of asana, called Ethos Yoga, that corresponds to that ethos program’s theme. These constitute beautiful, if simple, yoga practices in their own right, many consisting of original asana. So everyone studying in the Ethos Program Immersions will learn the yoga forms that correspond to the theme of the program. That said, MogaDao Yoga, which consists of Classic 5-Realms Yoga, 5-Realms Vinyasa, Sunrise and Sunset Yoga, Erotogenic Yoga (within the Depth Sexuality Ethos Program), Trauma Yoga, and Primordial Yoga (for dancers and martial artists) is an astonishingly rich world of asana reaching into so many zones of human being. So stay tuned for announcements, and, if you are a yoga teacher studying MogaDao, don’t be shy and voice your desire to delve deeper, as that will make a difference as to how frequently we hold Ethos Program VII immersions.
