Event Descriptions:

Awakening Heart
Soul Centered Yoga, Meditation + Live Music for Transforming Times

We are living in a time of great awakening and transformation both individually and collectively. We are in a process of Awakening together. The human heart holds the keys to our transformation at both a personal and planetary level. The Heart is the seat of our vital force, our spiritual essence and our deepest feeling and aliveness. Ancient spiritual traditions along with artists, poets, musicians, lovers all and modern science have all been fascinated by the human heart and how to tap into it and understand its profound energy and affect on our being. The next level of our evolution is tied into the awakening and integration of H E A R T Consciouness.

Join us for this intimate, healing yoga practice as we explore teachings practices and tools to help us all tap into the power and magic of our hearts.

Yoga classes will include a short dharma talk, practice of heart/soul centered yoga, meditation, chanting and beautiful live music with Shantala.

All levels are welcome.


Heart Medicine Kirtan: An Evening of Ecstatic Chanting

Join us for an intimate and soul-stirring evening of chanting, music, mantras and medicine songs as we come together in community and celebrate the journey of life. Kirtan is the practice of chanting or singing in a group. Sanskrit mantras, prayers, medicine songs, soulful grooves, dancing and heart wisdom allow for a deep communal experience. It is at once a practice of meditation, exploration and activation that connects us back to the heart.
Acclaimed Yogi and Mantra Music Artist Saul will be joined by the wonderful talents of various artists including Jim Beckwith, Shantala (Benjy & Heather Wertheimer), Jens Jarvie, Ben Leinbach, Kat McMillan, Hudost and local musicians for these beautiful devotional evenings.


Honey in the Heart ~ Bhakti Yoga Experience + Kirtan House Concert

Bhakti yoga is the yoga of the heart, it is the practice of devotion which awakens the deep love within all of us.

Please join us for this intimate and interactive mantra music concert ~ an evening of chanting, music, mantras and medicine songs as we come together in community and celebrate the journey of life. Through teachings & reflections we will explore the path of Bhakti and the practice chanting as a one of self-healing, peace and awakening.


Prana Shakti – Soul Sadhana (Yoga Practice with live Music)

Prana is the life current or force that sustains our being and is the basis of a living Uni-verse. According to ancient yogic teachings, Prana is also the gateway to the Soul, she is Mother of all things, the inner teacher, she gives life, nourishment and consciousness to all things. Both Ancient Yoga & Ayurveda were rooted in the science or understanding Prana. This class will share teachings and practices to support us in awakening and strengthen the flow of prana within, connecting intuitively with the living intelligence of prana and opening the gateway to the infinite within.

All levels welcome – class will include the practice of breath/heart centered yoga, chanting, simple meditation and live music.

 Unlocking the Sacred Healing Power of our Breath

(Healing Breath Workshop)

“Make friends with your breath, it will introduce you to your Soul.” ~ Shailendra Sharma

There is no energy more essential to life itself than breath, it is the force that connects mind, body and Spirit. Within our very breath, is the power to heal, rejuvenate and awaken the life energy inside of us.

In this unique workshop we will dive into the ancient and sacred science of breath known in sacred traditions around the world, practice and learn different techniques of breathing for 4 main actions; cleansing / awakening, energizing, balancing and calming/cooling. We will also explore developing and strengthen our lungs, respiratory system, and breath capacity, using the breath for longevity, how to use the breath in meditation, and how to use breath for when we need it to shift our energy levels and raise our vibration.

This workshop will support a deep connection to the healing power of breath.
