    Bhakti Yoga

    Sunday, April 26th, 1:00pm - 3:30pm
    Bhakti Yoga
    Bhakti yoga, the path of devotion, is a direct method for channeling emotions in a positive manner. The practitioner finds a safe and uplifting outlet for negative emotions rather than letting them build up inside.

    Bhakti Yoga, which has often been overlooked in western culture is the path of the heart, and the easiest path to enlightenment. Often people are more present in their minds, the seat of worries and doubts, whereas practicing Bhakti Yoga brings you to the heart, the seat of love and compassion.

    You will learn about Mantras and Bhajans (chants), the symbolism behind the most popular Hindu deities, as well as some traditional stories. As well, how the practice can help emotional people find balance, and people less emotional get in touch with their emotions in a safe manner. The afternoon will conclude with a puja, a ceremony to focus the heart and mind.

    Cost: $25.00 per person. You are welcome to bring flowers or fruit for the puja.

    Inner Vision Quest - Blindfolded Yoga

    Thursday, April 30th, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
    Inner Vision Quest - Blindfolded Yoga
    Turn your gaze inward as you take a journey on your mat without use of vision.
     
    Life is full of visual distractions, and the culture and technology of today can leave you well and truly overstimulated. The majority of information you receive is through your vision; You are constantly absorbing the information from the world around you – from billboards, TV, newspapers, cell phones, signs and symbols, to the expressions on the faces of others.
     
    Practicing yoga blindfolded is a time to slow down the asana practice, and tune deeper into the breath. The present moment becomes magnified. We will move mindfully and carefully through familiar poses – exploring the opportunity to feel more on the inside as the other senses become more in-tune and refined. Your mind must be more focused and present; if the mind wanders at all, or shifts to something outside of the body, you will sense the change.

    Practicing without the use of your vision allows you to connect to your deeper self, and to cultivate a renewed sense of self confidence. You will learn to trust yourself more fully, becoming more in tune with your intuition and the wisdom of your body.

    "I just wanted to say how much I loved this evening’s hatha class. I’ve never done blindfolded yoga, and at first I was a little apprehensive. But in the end, I focused way more on how the poses felt rather than on how I thought they should look, so that made the whole sessions about me and my body… my ego kind of disappeared. It was a really nice experience, so thank you." ~ Anne
