Raja and Hatha Yoga Intensive

12 Tuesdays in Seattle from Sept 8, 12 Thursdays in Bothell from Sept 10 , 6 - 9 pm plus 1 Saturday Workshop Oct 17

At the Raja Yoga Intensive, you’ll learn how to meditate, and how to practice the yoga postures in the way they were originally intended: as a priceless aid to inner unfoldment. You’ll thrill to discover how the inspired wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita integrates with the a deeper understanding of the Judao-Christian heritage, and how the science of yoga comes to us through the timeless psycho-spiritual insights of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (wherein is found the Eight-Fold Path known as Ashtanga Yoga).

You will learn to move and to discover overtones and subtle vibrations in your voice as you speak. You will learn to improvise and to write: the end product of the course will be a little booklet with stories and poems for children.

Power of Chanting

Thursday, August 13, 2015 7:30 – 9:00 pm in Bothell

Singing, Paramhansa Yogananda said, is a divine art; and devotional chanting is the highest form of this art because it leads to the attunement with the Cosmic vibration.

  • We will explore the true purpose of chanting.
  • Come prepared to listen and sing a number of chants which will help us live in the consciousness of God.
  • Appropriate for beginners and those who already chant.
