Yoga Energy Activation - Global Mala Project - OTM

Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Our energy future has no borders. The fuel we burn effects the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat – we are interconnected as every community is “downwind” of the next.
 
Dear Friends,
 
In a bow to everyone from D.C. to Colorado, Fukushima Japan leakage, Hawaii spills and Syria, this is a week to move into collective prayer, meditation and action. Meditation is an ancient, ancestral and often untapped power to help navigate positive change in challenging times.

Just last night I got an email  for the upcoming Global Mala meditation to become part of the Live Online Google+ . We only have a few days to spread the word for anyone who wants to be part of the collective meditation. Please join us wherever you are in the world and if you are local come participate in raising consciousness that will be shared around the world.

All of your donations on that day are also bringing meditation in action with Off the Mat and YogaEnergyActivism.

Please share or forward this email to invite anyone in the world to participate with the power of Fall Equinox and UN International Peace Day.

Blessings,

Shiva

Tending the Heart Fire Retreat in Maryland

Monday, September 16, 2013
Dear Friends,

This is the only retreat I will be offering on the East Coast and the first one focused on the inner aspects of the book I have been writing that will be released this Dec. 21, 2013.

I am grateful for Aimee McBride, Maria Garre, Kristen Townsend, Katherine Kuzner, Andrew McAuley of the wonderful Ananda Shala Prana Flow-based studio in Frederick MD for finding such a beautiful country retreat to be together as the magic of fall begins. We will just be coming back from Kerala from Navaratri with blessings to share.

There are special rates for Prana Flow teacher trainees and mentors as the retreat counts for elective teacher training credit.

We hope you can join us.
Happy Mon(moon)day
Love all ways,
Shiva

Thursday, September 12, 2013
Dear Friends,

I'm grateful for conscious community.  This week we are here at Exhale and I am offering public Prana Flow vinyasas within our foundation Embodying the Flow teacher training - class times below.  Please join us and help spread the word for next week's Global Mala Event.  You can use your Exhale class pass or offer any donation for Off the Mat's Ecuador Seva Challenge.

New Moon - 2014 Calendar Unveiled - Ganesh Chaturthi - Rosh Hashanah - Bhakti Fest

Wednesday, September 04, 2013
Dear Friends on the Path,

The New Moon is an auspicious time to begin new cycles and this new moon coincides with Ganesh Chaturthi and is the same time as the Jewish High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah and the two-week "sandhya" period before the Fall season begins. This is a wonderful time to realign oneself with the greater earth changes. The next full moon will initiate the Fall Equinox, and Global Mala around that time is a spark for peace all of humanity.  With this coming new moon, a 108 day period begins from the New Moon until the Winter Solstice Dec. 21st.

We hope to see you this weekend as we are heading to Bhakti Fest www.bhaktifest.com with a Prana Flow tribe for Embodying the Sacred-Mandala of Asanas. See you next week at Exhale for those original energetic vinyasa sequences from the foundation and for a special Global Mala gathering on Sept. 21st.

Shanah Tovah! Jai Ganesh!


Love all ways,

Shiva

YEA - Yoga Energy Activation - Global Mala Project - OTM

Monday, August 26, 2013
Namaskaram Friends,

I am feeling gratitude for an amazing summer from Munich, Santorini, London, Avebury-Glastonbury, PranaDanda Yoga and Yoga Trance Dance at Exhale, Wanderlust Colorado, Whistler, Canada, Kripalu and the Wake Up Festival and now Bhakti Fest on the horizon.

I feel more than ever that yoga is a process that links us to our collective evolution and positive activation when there can be so much beauty and suffering simultaneously. The Global Mala project is about tuning into what is happening within yourself, your community and the world and this year we are supporting Off the Mat's Seva Challenge in Ecuador through Yoga Energy Activism.

From September 19th - 22nd there will ways to connect around the world through UN International Peace Day and the Fall Equinox and Global Mala happenings around the world from personal retreats at home to community gatherings and large-scale events like the Global Mala New Jersey.

Please email and let us know if you are offering a Global Mala, join our facebook page Yoga Energy Activism, and connect with OTM to sign up for the Energy Sabbath.

All love,
Shiva

Costa Rica Pranafication Open

Thursday, July 25, 2013
Dear Friends,

We are so happy to be returning to our favorite New Year retreat on the sea in Nosara, Costa Rica. This is a powerful spot for a New Year Pranafication - where a daily immersion of prana flow yoga, meditation, pranadandayoga, kalari, mantra bonfires, massage, healing papaya and fruits, natural Tican cuisine meet the elements - healing ocean surf, ecologically protected beach, open sky, ocean bonfires and fresh prana.

Registration is opening today - every year this retreat is full and this year we have two weeks beginning with the Winter Solstice but half the rooms so connect with our great yogadventurer, Kristi Mosley, who has been to Costa Rica with her beloved Dan for five  years in a row to assure your place (special discount for two weeks)! Dan learned to surf in Costa and is now soaring on the outside. We are grateful to the amazing community at Blue Spirit and from around the world that makes this pilgrimage with us every year. Blue Spirit has many solar-powered rooms and is an incredible example of being in harmony with the environment.

Please connect to Kristi (contact info below) as first come first serve if you are interested.

For the Waves,

All love

Shiva
