Mantra and Chanting

cindy landscape
Cindy guides us through a simple mantra, and builds into a full sloka or verse. Each workshop has a specific focus, and Cindy explains the meaning of each Sanskrit word and its use in the chant. Yoga’s ancient roots, chants or mantras are offered in Sanskrit, the ancient language of India. Their meaning is said to be universal as Sanskrit is the language of the heart and human spirit, and is the perfect instrument for bringing about healing on many levels.

Listen to Cindy chanting here.

All welcome, with no prior experience required.

Movie Night

In this yoga movie Enlighten Up filmmaker Kate Churchill is determined to prove that yoga can transform anyone. Nick Rosen is skeptical but agrees to be her guinea pig. Kate immerses Nick in yoga, and follows him around the world as he examines the good, the bad and the ugly of yoga. The two encounter celebrity yogis, true believers, kooks and world-renowned gurus. Tensions run high as Nick’s transformational progress lags and Kate’s plan crumbles. Ultimately, what they find is not what they expected.

Please remember to RSVP.
