Awakening Bhakti: Chant + Flow :
Join San Francisco-based yogi, Peter Walters
for a sweet and sweaty deep dive into the heart opening practices of Bhakti, the yoga of love and devotion. In this workshop we will explore myth, mantra, pranayama and asana. We will bring to life the stories and mantras of the deities that we often chant to in class (Shiva who?) and learn how these ancient living stories can support our practice, and also how they can inform our daily lives off of the mat. We’ll discuss why we chant and the many benefits of a regular mantra practice. This workshop will include a strong vinyasa and pranayama practice, and we’ll conclude with kirtan/chanting and any questions you have. Are you ready? This workshop is perfect for both newer and more seasoned practitioners looking to deepen their practices, and also teachers looking to bring more bhakti and chanting into their offerings, but not quite sure how to start. You’ll leave with a heart cracked open, and tools to take home to incorporate into your daily Sadhana.
