Art of Purification
A workshop in two parts: Physical & Subtle Body
Jorge Luna stands for cleansing your body, mind and spirit of everything that does not support your sustainable joy. The first part of this workshop focused on the larger corporal and physical issue of Toxicity: food, environment, product consumption and ecological circumstances.
This detoxification workshop will focus on the nuances of purifying the mind and spirit. The class will begin with a 45 minute lecture regarding how we move into the truth of self responsibility, goal and intention setting and how to become introspective without judgment. A 90 minute flow will follow: also focusing on emotional and spiritual themes. We will close with a 30 minute lecture of how to detoxify sustainably and create a daily plan for success. The last few minutes will be question and answer.
If you are looking to create sustainable joy and love in your life in real, specific and concrete terms, then this workshop is for you.

Yoga for Weight Loss and Obesity
8 Part Series workshop
Drawing from the lineage of Krishnamacharya, this workshop develops over time to help practitioners lose weight. The actual practice involves a developing practice with breathing techniques and patterns that help stimulate metabolism and shed weight. The practice will become increasingly more challenging over time creating the most dramatic results after a few months.
Additionally, the course will focus on food selection and control. Although we will discuss emotional issues relate to weight management, the focus of this workshop is primarily physical.
