“To open fully to kirtan, to the singing of the divine Name, is to know this sweetest form of bliss.” ~ Ram Dass

 

Discover and tap into the bliss that dwells within you in this Sing Your Heart Out Kirtan with Julia Berkeley, and Colorado friends, Yoshi Aono, and Judith Piazza. Originally from the UK, Julia currently resides in Ojai, California, where she regularly offers kirtan in between teaching yoga, offering transformational workshops, and soul-centered healing. In this first time Colorado kirtan, she will share favorites from her new album, Embody Love, amidst a mix of other heart-opening melodies and chants. Enjoy a divine evening of mantra, song, and basking in the unending source of happiness, peace, and love that exists within you. No experience needed!

Kirtan is an ancient form of mantra meditation and has the power to open and purify the heart. This chanting, accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming, brings the audience to its feet in the joys of singing, clapping, and dancing with pure devotion. Kirtan can induce profound states of meditation, bliss, and ecstasy. You will not be able to resist the urge to join in!

 

Ananda (Ananda-murari Das) has been practicing and teaching kirtan for many years in the bhakti-yoga tradition. His deep love of music has inspired him to use kirtan as a means to share this devotional treasure throughout the world. Ananda has performed throughout India and North America, and his passion for kirtan has inspired and enlivened persons from all cultural backgrounds. He sees kirtan as the universal song and feels privileged to have the opportunity to share ecstatic kirtan everywhere he goes.

Take time for an immersive, self-care experience to replenish and bring relaxation to all levels of your being.

 

Join ERYT 500 Marin McCallen for a combination of mudra, mantra, pranayama, meditation, intention setting, gentle and restorative yoga, as well as deeply rejuvenating yoga nidra. While in this nourishing and relaxing three-hour workshop, you will practice timeless traditions to address balance and vitality within your whole self.

 

The practice of yoga nidra, a guided meditation in Savasana, has many benefits, including increased serotonin and decreased cortisol and adrenaline in the body. This helps to counteract the effects of stress, anxiety, and even trauma. It is a practice that brings balance to every system of the body, all while you simply relax into your awareness.

 

During this afternoon workshop, each of your layers will be nurtured by taking you progressively deeper into calm, peace, balance, and relaxation. Release layers of tension and stress, replenish your own vitality, and experience your radiant, true self.

 

*This workshop is appropriate for all levels and is good for three CE hours

Do you have a yoga wheel? Would you like to try one to learn the different ways you can use and benefit from it in your yoga practice?

 

Join Lisa and Kristin of Wild Souls Yoga to learn ways you can use the yoga wheel to stretch, strengthen, tone your muscles, and flow.

 

The yoga wheel can be used as an athletic stretching and recovery tool. It is awesome for gaining more flexibility in your spine, hips, and shoulders. It is great for core work and for strengthening all the major muscle groups. The yoga wheel is like yin for your spine, physical therapy, and a massage all in one!

 

In this workshop, you will explore creative ways to use the wheel to loosen tight areas of the body and have the opportunity to try intermediate and advanced poses. You will learn safety precautions to have an all-around knowledge on how to use this great athletic tool.

No wheel? No worries! We will have yoga wheels for your use at no cost. If you love the wheel, they will be available for purchase after class. Come and join us for this therapeutic, yet fun workshop!
