Bhakti On The Mat Session One
Bhakti Yoga can be a wonderful vehicle for infusing asana practice with more meaning, feeling, and inspiration- especially when we’re feeling burnt out, dried up, or a lack of motivation. Deepen your connection to the spirit of life by merging the heart-opening qualities of bhakti yoga with the sensuality and vitality of asana. This playful all-levels practice will include storytelling from the mythical world of yoga, heart-felt kirtan chanting, graceful vinyasa sequences, and evocative music. Some experience with yoga is recommended. Sean has taught this workshop at festivals and conferences across the country including sold-out attendance at The Yoga Journal Conference and Bhakti Fest.
Saturday Afternoon – 3:00pm – 5:30pm $45
Tune The Heart: Singing, Bhakti Poetry & Journaling
A deeper exploration of the power of sound and music through yogic singing meditation practice and gospel songs. Also includes an experiential introduction to several inspirational heart-opening poets including Rumi, Mirabai, and Kabir woven with storytelling, participatory chanting, and journal-writing to awaken your inner poet.
Sunday – 9:30am – 12:30pm $55
