Sunday, Feb 24: Bhakti On The Mat Workshop w/Sean & The Wild Lotus Band / Noon-2:30pm / Downtown
Bhakti Yoga can be a wonderful vehicle for infusing asana practice with more meaning, feeling, and inspiration- especially when we’re feeling burnt out, dried up, or a lack of motivation. Deepen your connection to the spirit of life by merging the heart-opening qualities of bhakti yoga with the sensuality and vitality of asana in this playful practice which includes storytelling, poetry, kirtan chanting, graceful vinyasa sequences, and evocative music. Some experience with vinyasa yoga is recommended. Accompanied by the live grooves of The Wild Lotus Band (Alvin Young and Gwendolyn Colman).
Sean has taught this workshop with the band at festivals and conferences across the country including sold-out attendance at The Yoga Journal Conference. For more info visit www.SeanJohnsonAndTheWildLotusBand.com
