Loosening the Knots

with Raama Das, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, YACEP

November 22 - 24, 2019

Loosen the knots that bind you during a weekend designed to release physical and mental tension. Join Raama to learn practical yogic tools from the Tantric tradition for stiff muscles that prevent you from getting on the Yoga mat, difficulty breathing fully, or racing thoughts.

This weekend, you will:

  • Increase strength and flexibility in the legs, hips, and back to improve blood circulation and range of motion
  • Learn essential pranayama (breathing techniques) to increase vitality and calm and clear the mind
  • Practice a simple, powerful, and effective meditation technique for inner focus
  • Experience deep relaxation for stress management
  • Establish daily habits for a balanced and harmonious life

This workshop is perfect for beginners, the elderly, and those returning to Yoga after a break. With regular practice of this toolkit of techniques, you will be well prepared for classical Yoga classes and your own personal practice. This workshop will benefit experienced Yoga practitioners as well as beginner students wishing to deepen their existing practice.

When you take this program, you’re eligible to get 20% off tuition on your next program with Raama Das, Loosening the Deep Seated Knots, March 6–8, 2020.

Continuing Education (CE) Opportunities


I am in my 30’s and when you think of what to do over a weekend, there is plenty to do but doing a yoga retreat is a good self-care program. I do not see men my age in my class, primarily they think it’s not cool. Doing Yoga is cool and will add more energy to do more cool stuff! Give it a try! — Pat Chandran

Joint Pain from impact sports and muscle fatigue from standing long hours at work kept me from enjoying yoga. This class educated and helped me with stretching to prepare me for comfortable yoga practices. — Mary Beth Sanders

Raam is very knowledgeable and shares it in a very relatable way. He was so clear and happy to re-explain whenever needed. The entire weekend flowed really nicely. The kindness and supportive vibe made all feel welcome. I (as a teacher myself) loved seeing the staff jump in to help make the poses accessible to all. — Past Participant
