“You are the universe in ecstatic motion” Rumi
Join internationally touring yoga teacher and transpersonal art therapist Lara Zilibowitz on this practical and mystical journey into the art of energetics within asana and meditation.
To realise yoga asana as a profound opportunity to wake up to the underlying reality that we are so much more than what we can see with our outer-seeing eyes. To realise that we are a part of a vast field of intelligence that creates us and sustains us, and that we will one day be folded back into.
This is not a training about technical outer alignment, but instead to reconnect to the natural inner alignment that exists when we attune to the currents of energy (pancha vayus) that underlie all movement – from the way we sit and stand, to the way a tree grows and the way the whole universe turns on its axis.
This training is an invocation to shift our approach away from teaching or practicing fixed and static ‘poses’ and instead to wake up to the living, dancing, shape shifting nature of spanda and shakti which animates the inner world of yoga asana.
The encouragement is there for you to realise that there are no straight lines in nature. Nothing is ever standing still – everything is in a state of living vinyasa, of ever-evolving flow and fluctuation.
My invitation to you as a student and teacher of yoga is to embody this flow of grace and nature as you connect to your breath and move through your practice and your life.
What you will takeaway from this course
Demystify what is Tantra yoga and map it’s history and differentiation from Classical Yoga
Understanding vinyasa as the evolution of Tantra yoga and the embodiment of nature.
You’ll learn to embody the five elements (pancha tattvas) and understand their correspondence to the seven chakras in the seasons of your inner and outer life.
You’ll realise the meeting point between quantum physics and yoga – to be able to viscerally experience the underlying energetic field that unifies and underlies all life forms, via the philosophy and embodiment of the pancha vayus.
Understanding the significance of the breath when cueing inner alignment and energetics.
To realise every asana as a full body mudra, with a profound capacity to shift our awareness and invite us into moving meditation and flow-state consciousness.
You’ll understand how to teach to every kosha. To intentionally awaken the maps of the physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies with our words, cues and body language – from the outer to the inner bodies, from the muscular skeletal system, to the mystical realm of intuition and imagination.
To understand that as teachers, we are the conductors of energy in the space. The way we use language directly affects not only movement, but the spirit in the room.
To expand the repertoire of your language to incorporate poetry, metaphor, visualisation and analogy as tools to awaken to the unseen world of energy and spirit.

William Simpson, Writer & Body Poetry Yoga Teacher
The Body Poetry Yoga Teacher Training was the most amazing experience. I now see yoga in a much different light. I have always known that there is a lot more to the poses than just the physical aspect but have never really understood how and what that is.
Lara has put together an incredible training that dives deep into energetics and aliveness, giving us the language and understanding to teach what we all feel so deeply inside to be true but have not had the words.
Thank you Lara from the bottom of my heart, I am so grateful to have you as a teacher and mentor. Your ability to hold space for so many to share and be seen is such a super power. Thank you for welcoming us all with so much love and grace.”
