Bhakti Flow; Devotional Yoga Flow with Sacred Song
Devotional Yoga Flow with Sacred Song
In the Bhakti Yoga tradition, we practice celebrating the divine through embodied prayers such as yoga movements, singing and dancing. Join us for this exploration into ourselves - our naturally joyful, internally blissful, truest selves - as we unravel and peel back the hardened muck of conditioning which often prevents us from experiencing the essence nature of Who We Are.
Live music will accompany you in your yogic dance of unraveling, as we allow the energy of sweet company and heart opening sacred songs to move us through a devotional flow. Beware - actual dancing may unfold spontaneously as a result of the group's rising Shakti.
After the soft surrender of savasana, serenaded by sweet tunes from our facilitators, we will arrive into a seated position as a group to channel whichever medicine melodies and/or mantras arise as part of the collective energy that we've created.
In closing, we pray that the merit of our practices be sent out to awaken all hearts, and that our words, thoughts and deeds contribute to peace and happiness for all.
Thank you all for coming! Om, peace, amen.
This class is donations based. We humbly ask for a $10 donation. We also recognize that just dedicating your time to this class is always a wonderful way to donate as well.
