  • Early morning Sadhana series November
    with Susie Burke

    Deepen Your Practice: Early Morning Sadhana Series
    With Susie Burke
    November 18th-22nd

    Take your yoga practice to the next level! Deepen your yoga practice through this morning Sadhana, a discipline or routine spiritual practice that includes an invigorating hatha flow, with extended savasana, twenty-minute meditation, breath (pranayama) and concentration (dharana) exercises, and chanting.

    Developing your Sadhana builds connection with your intention, and illuminates your own infinite nature through the dedication of practicing beyond the postures. Within the practice of yoga, keeping a Sadhana empowers us to connect with a sense of groundedness upon which we can face the world with a greater awareness of our truth and intention.

    This workshop is for all yoga practitioners who wish to
    deepen their spiritual yoga experience, or who simply wish to
    have an extended early morning practice with these
    additional elements of yoga.

  • Spirit of mantra
    with Sarada Dhupati

    The Sprit of Mantra
    Mantra Chanting Series in Two parts
    with Sarada
    Tuesdays, December 10th & 17th 7:45-9:15pm

    Vedic Mantras are pure sounds that were heard by the sages and Rishis in ancient times. Above and beyond religion, we sing these mantras as an invocation to our highest inner guide. Mantra is an instrument to train the mind. They carry a powerful energy passed
    down over millenniums as seeds(bijas) of the divine consciousness. An eternal bridge from the past to the future, Sound (Shabda)and Mantras remain as a timeless expression of our aspiration to transcend and experience oneness with all.

    This workshop is designed to help understand the meaning of mantras and the benefits of chanting them out loud and also introduces the student to the chanting of Vedic mantras and the beautiful musical language of India with a traditional approach that seeks to
    simplify and make comprehensible this spellbinding art. This workshop helps in guiding an approachable way to chant a mantra. Participants explore through collective singing the power of sound(shabda), expression(bhava) and its purifying influence on our being and
    environment. No experience is required. If you have a japa mala you are welcome to bring it to class.
