BHAKTI YOGA IMMERSION: A PATH IN TO THE HEART
Bhakti is loving devotion and surrender to what is- to this embodiment, to each moment, to the ever-changing nature around and within. We chant and surrender to the pure essence of the mantra, the source, the sound, each other, and then slowly but inevitably, to every moment of our life. Sustained bliss is what reveals itself. In this immersion, we will delve in to accessible techniques, theory and practice to awaken our hearts, and our voices to experience the power that bhakti holds.
THE POWER OF MANTRA
Mantra literally means "to protect and purify the heart and mind". In this workshop we will explore the in's and out's of mantra, from the language of, to the history of, to the science of, to the psychology of. We will learn the different types of mantras, and different techniques for how to effectively and accessibly use mantras. You will need a yoga mat and any sacred object that is meaningful to you. (i.e.- pic of family, something from the earth, jewelry, etc…)
THE SOUL OF VOICE
Within each of us is a unique and powerful voice. In this workshop we will cultivate a safe space to explore and empower our relationship to our own voice (5th chakra-Vishuddi). We will use the practice of chant to allow our voices to emerge, and understand the powerful connection that our intentions, our stories and our dreams have to our authentic, happiest self.
Bhakti Vinyasa Yoga Project (Live Music + Yoga)
The Alive Musical Yoga Journey is a unique and transformational yoga and musical journey. Through an original choreographed yoga practice, weaving sophisticated asana sequencing, heart opening movement, intentional mantra and breathwork, the BVP creates an unforgettable transformative practice like no other.
The Alive Musical Yoga Experience (AMYE) is an experimental and innovative project focused on exploring and integrating the power of asana, music, mantra, and movement.Over the past 3 years, the AMYE has consisted of its founder Kristin Luna Ray (www.KristinLunaRay.com) and her husband Joshua Canter, in collaboration with various musicians and teachers throughout the United States and Costa Rica. Luna, a recording artist, kirtan leader, and inspirational singer-songwriter, is also a devoted yoga practitioner and teacher. Through her moving and inspirational lyrics, which have been the foundation of her work, along with her understanding of both music, sound vibration, and yoga, she has developed a model with the AMYE which has unique and diverse qualities compared to the average live music with yoga class.
Day Yoga teacher Chris Sutherland will be teaching an open level vinyasa practice during the BVP. You won't want to miss this amazing yoga class that is done with live music!
