Drawing from dozens of un-published Tantric texts, in this course Christopher Tompkins will finally reveal the critical role that Chakras played in the powerfully innovative Yoga that defined the Tantric tradition (ca. 500-1400 A.D.), one that inspired the embodied vinyāsa of our practice today.

I'm so grateful to Banyan Botanicals for supplying our teacher trainings and retreats with oils as we learn about Ayurveda and living in rhythm with the seasons. We came up with the title of "ambassador of oil" as you all know how much I believe in abhyanga as a self-healing practice. I love their commitment to Organic oils with incredible medicinal variety as well as organic yellow mung dahl! and making ayurvedic materials, herbs available for all.
