Full Moon - Hanuman Jayanti

Friday, April 26, 2013
Full Moon - Hanuman Jayanti
 
Namaskaram
 
We tried to get this greeting to you yesterday, but unfortunately were experiencing some technical difficulties.  Alas!  We are settling back in Solstice Canyon for the next six weeks for Living Flow – Energetic Vinyasa where 70 yogi/inis from around the world will live energetic vinyasa for ten days in Venice, CA. We have special classes with a few spaces below including upcoming PranaDandaYoga classes and online course. The new courses for Elemental Vinyasa corresponding with our current course will begin next week.
 
We are looking forward to the collective spirit for Wanderlust in the City in SF and Shakti Fest with our special Monday Temple of Rasa with Dave Stringer and Donna de Lory.
Otherwise, you can find us at home with Jai fertilizing the soil.

Let us pause to drink the saffron moon,
 
big hearted primal monkey blessings
taking refuge in love

Vigil for Boston - Navaratri - Exhale Classes - Shakti Fest - Online Courses

Thursday, April 18, 2013
Dear Friends,


We are holding vigil space with the people of Boston and resound the contemplation of the times: despite all of the tragedy and turmoil - there are more beings who are sustaining beneficial presence and actions. I feel very strongly that collective gatherings are places where we can move within this collective positive force field.

I am outside Amsterdam with my root teacher Daniel Odier, which is extraordinary. There was a healing experience for all in the 11th century cathedral Janskerk in Utrecht where Yoga Moves sponsored a day-long retreat in this cathedral. We were able to dance, chant, offer namaskar with bija mantra and enjoy sahaja movement and tandava with Daniel Odier with over 225 people. The walls were reverberating. Utrecht was the site in the 13th century of one of the first dance revivals-uprisings in the medieval times, and today there is circle dance and prayer in this church on Sundays.

We share some of this positive energy below as well as separate emails later this week from Wanderlust and Shakti Fest where I am part of these gatherings with other amazing musicians and teachers.

Our classes coming up in April-May at Exhale will be charging up including some special PranaDandaYoga classes and a Beltane Yoga Trance Dance (few spots). We will still be collecting gently used bras up until Mother's day and Shakti Fest to send to Free the Girls (thanks Patrick for your great help).

Our next online courses which have great community of prana flow and beyond teachers and students is coming up at the beginning of May including PranaDanda for those interested in upcoming teacher training.

Now more than ever stay connected to the energy of life.
Friday is the last day of Navaratri and we will be closing with a homa or fire ceremony at Yoga Moves.


A bow to all,

Shiva

I Bow to She who gives Liberation…

New Moon support to all on the path.
Spring Navaratri begins tomorrow for a 10 day journey with the New Moon (see our online offering). I will be with Lama Tsultrim and the great community of InsightLA. If you are local, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

On Thursday, I am off to see be with my root teacher Daniel Odier and the wonderful community of Netherlands at Yoga Moves and Svati, Nele, Sonja and other great Prana Flow teachers there. Shiva Kumar and Else will be joining us too.

Demetri will be in Boston teaching PranaDandaYoga (see below).

We will be back at Exhale and home for the month of May so we look forward to seeing our local friends.



To the ever cycle of renewal.
Love all ways,

Spring Cleaning - Inner and Outer Renewal

Wednesday, April 03, 2013
Dear Friends on the Path,

With Spring comes cleaning. Every year I try to synch with Spring Navaratri for my spring "cleaning" a 10 day ancient sadhana festival that occurs during the transition point or sandhya between seasons.

This year we are offering our Spring Cleaning with Spring Navaratri for both women and men. I will be offering three levels of sadhana so that you can participate in a simple way to a full transformational program according to your lifestyle. I find some years I am on retreat as this year with Daniel Odier and offering workshops in Netherlands.

Some years we are quiet at home. Spring brings its own changes as growth composts old structures from the past that must be renewed for evolution to occur.

"Spring Cleaning - Inner and Outer Renewal" is the theme of our annual Online Spring Navaratri group. It is offered to men and women as daily meditation and life-sadhana program including a gentle spring cleaning detox with the Navaratri cycle. I have found this to be the most amazing macro support for the transition of spring and the tending of the inner fire. Our next cycle of online programs is beginning this month as well, including Prana Danda Yoga with Demetri and the Pathways of Prana Flow II.

Lama Tsutrim's workshop begins on this next new moon - a rare opportunity. Munich just went online with special guests Masood Ali Kahn/Sheila Bringi.

May we make it through this transition into the new moon with peace in our hearts and clarity in our vision, inner and outer home.


Love all ways,

Shiva
