When we’re in the world of distraction we have a momentum that brings us to move distraction, to more overwhelm. He starts talking about the “almost a chakra” around your ear… and what happens when the temporal bone floats. This episode is a gateway into the subtle body experience via Tias’s transmission.
Meet Tias Little and his newest book, [Yoga of the Subtle Body: A Guide to the Physical and Energetic Anatomy of Yoga](http://amzn.to/2pyegnQ
). Of course, many of you have already been touched by the depth of Tias’s work. In this episode Tias describes his fascination with exploring and decoded the subtle body, and gives us a guidebook to know our own technology, our own unending interiors, and the great peace within.
I rap with Tias Little about the Yoga of the Subtle Body:
- How the subtle Body unlocks a better human experience
- Becoming present through understanding your past as vibratory patterns + memories
- Discover the Soundless Place within you
- Unlock time by opening space with the temporal bone around your ear
- Processing emotions in the present
What you’ll get out of tuning in:
- How Tias starts his day
- Why you want to start to sit and explore your breath
- What is happens as Tias grows older and wiser
