The Teachers’ Topics…
A Practical Kirtan Workshop:
For your yoga practice and life

with Sita Miriam Zernis
Saturday, January 17th
3:00 – 5:00pm

Kirtan (or sacred chanting) is an ancient, yogic tradition that can add deeper levels of spirituality to your yoga practice and help your mind experience a pure meditative state. It is the practice of Bhakti Yoga – the yoga of devotion. Chanting focuses on the sound vibrations created by our voices and how they can be used to produce a feeling of euphoria as well as to make the mind clear and present.

The practice of learning Kirtan is a subtle combination of inspiration, dedication, relaxation and devotion that we can all benefit from in some way.

Miriam will guide in first understanding the essential elements of Kirtan – mantras, bhajans (sacred songs), the energy of the Deities and Sanskrit, then in engaging in the full experience with harmonium and easy chants that can quiet the mind and open the heart. ALL voices are welcome.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga Practice
with Liz Wendel
Sunday, February 15
Sunday, March 15

To relax is to rest deeply….This rest is different from sleep.
The session begins by bringing awareness to our breath and a guided pranayama emphasizing internal observations. Followed by a slow, easy movement to feel and notice our body relative to our surroundings. Then we move to fully supported rest, where with the aid of our props, we alternately stimulate and relax the body to move towards balance. Each pose is held for a period of time, and each pose creates physiological responses that are beneficial to our health. Savor the feeling of the deep relaxation of a restorative practice…give yourself this opportunity to fully surrender.
Class is held with a minimum advanced registration of 6 students.
Class size is limited to 14 students. Register online or at the shala.
