We should rejoice in this precious opportunity to study these instructions, which, if put into practice, can lead to full enlightenment within one short human life."

HYT Practice Classes

with Resident Teacher Trina Gunther

Highest Yoga Tantra practice can seem overwhelming at first, but it doesn't need to be!

These monthly HYT practice classes are designed to help practitioners of all levels of experience improve their understanding, familiarity and confidence in their Heruka and Vajrayogini practice. Central to this is finding a daily practice that keeps us moving in the right direction, keeps our empowerment blessings alive, and works with our daily schedules. 

Each HYT practice class begins with The Blissful Path sadhana.

In conjunction with these classes, we are offering a monthly emptiness workshop to deepen our imprints, understanding and experience of this profound wisdom. This beneficial regular study of emptiness will breathe life into our HYT practice, making our correct imagination effective!  

These coordinated classes are designed to support the development of our HYT practice. Through these we will be guided step-by-step, gradually building up a qualified understanding of HYT practice and emptiness. Please see the general schedule of HYT classes below. For the schedule of emptiness workshops, please click on the emptiness workshop image or here.

These classes are offered in-person only  (except for wyoming practitioners) and by donation.
