The sages of yoga tell us that our essential nature is truth, joy and bliss. Our separation from that bliss is due to our entanglement in the peaks and valleys of this human experience. Mantra is a potent and powerful bridge to take the practitioner over the fluctuations of the external world and reconnect them to consciousness within. In the Divine Poetry workshop we will weave strong asana and mindful mantra together to tune the body, breath, mind and voice so they can all come together in a clear and purposeful harmony.
We will wade in the waters of Mantra Vidya, or the science of Mantra. Part discussion, part all-levels asana practice, and part Kirtan; we will converse with the intellect, the heart and the body to truly feel the power of this ancient practice. Workshop can used as Continuing Education Credits for Yoga Alliance.
What is Kirtan?
Kirtan is musical singing / chanting that is one of the 9-limbs of Bhakti Yoga. Participating in a Kirtan is said to cleanse the soul and free the heart.
