Kali Natha Yoga weaves together movement and breath with awareness. It is a kundalini tantric yoga that balances the energy centers and activates the flow of energy up the spine with asanas, chanting, breath work, mudras, and meditation. The movements are deep with meaning and purpose and are shared from the heart. This yoga is a puja (moving prayer) designed to invoke our authentic nature and awaken us to live with an open heart. It is accessible to everyone, regardless of level, and gives us many beneficial tools to use in our lives both on and off the mat.

Saturday, September 9 - 3:30 PM - 5 PM
Join us for an exploration of finding balance through music, Ayurveda and Bhakti Yoga.
Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of love and devotion. It is often practiced through uplifting music and chanting shared in a group called a Kirtan.
Those who love music, singing or chanting may think all music is good. However, some music may put you to sleep while it energizes another. Why can one song bring up feelings of irritability or even anger while another soothes your soul?
Ayurveda, or the Science of Life, explains why everything we do (including the smallest things) can bring us closer to balance or further away. It all depends on our unique blend of qualities.
IN THIS CLASS:
We will learn about Ayurveda and our individual nature or doshas.
We will identify the quality of music most suited to our nature and for bringing us equanimity. Then we will practice Bhakti Yoga and finish with our own Kirtan!
Come raise your voice in song!
Love donations appreciated, no one will be turned away.
