Puppy Love : Jivamukti Yoga Workshop Series – Benefiting the Pacific Marine Mammal Center with Nan Herbert
Wednesday, May 15 & May 22.
The Jivamukti Yoga method is one of nine internationally recognized styles of Hatha Yoga. A Jivamukti Yoga class is a rigorous flow of postures (vinyasa) designed to safely open your body using intelligent sequencing, intended to challenge and inspire you on many levels: mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual. Each class emphasizes the importance of practicing with an elevated intention.
Each 2-hour workshop will incorporate the core components (five tenets) of the Jivamukti method in an extended class format:
1. Scripture-source teachings from the ancient Sanskrit scriptures.
2. Bhakti-devotion; finding a greater purpose for our lives.
3. Ahimsa-non-harming; understanding how our actions affect other beings.
4. Music-Nada Yoga (the yoga of sound), chanting and listening to inspired music.
5. Meditation-turning inwards and reconnecting to our true selves.
* Some yoga experience required.
Workshop Series : $80
Single Workshop : $45
All proceeds will be donated to the PMMC
Prayer Bead Creation Meditation
with Khen Rinpoche
Wednesday, May 8.
In this workshop we will use prayer beads (malas) toguide our “japa” meditation. Khen Rinpoche will lead us into a meditation chanting the mantra for the “Green Tara”, a very powerful and healing mantra. Together we will chant the mantra many times, infusing all 108 beads of the mala you create, clearing or resetting your own personal strand from home, or making newly purchased prayer beads your own.
Come join us for this profound meditation, as we create tools for transformation. Mala kits, and beautiful gemstone malas will be available for purchase. Intuitive support will also be available to help guide you to the gemstone, or material that feels right for your personal healing and strand of prayer beads and to assist in your custom creation. While infusing our beads, resident yogi Ava Levine will cleanse and bathe us in sound healing using crystal singing bowls attuned for the heart & third eye, as well as utilizing other healing tools to encourage a deep, powerful experience. Upon closing of the meditation, Khen Rinpoche will be open to questions regarding Buddhist teachings and practices.
*Pre-Made Malas of varying gemstones & materials will also be available for purchase.
Due to a limited amount of mala kits and pre made malas, pre-registration is recommended.
Japa Meditation: $27.00
Prayer Bead Kits: $30.00
