Annual Day BHAKTImmersion in New Orleans

Bhakti Yoga & Soul Celebration In The Heart Of New Orleans with Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band

PLEASE NOTE: Space is limited. Early registration highly recommended. 

Sean and the band’s 8 Day BHAKTImmersion attracts yogis and yoga teachers who wish to experience the inspiration of bhakti yoga in a deep, fun, integrated way. The sessions are educational, experiential, and help participants to empower their creativity through the arts of bhakti yoga. Participants in the BHAKTImmersion have hailed from Italy, Ireland, Spain, Germany, Mexico, Canada, Bermuda, across the country, and of course the New Orleans region.

Sing your heart out, rekindle your soul, awaken the gods and goddesses within you, tap into your inner poet, dance like a child, feel your fingers tickle the harmonium as you accompany your chanting, get your hands on a drum and find your rhythm, explore the beauty, romance, and celebration of New Orleans, rejoice in the awakening of your unique voice and creativity.

Enhance your connection to Life through Bhakti yoga and kirtan. This 8 Day Intensive is for anyone who wants to steep in bhakti- the yoga of the heart, for yogis who are seeking to deepen their practice, and for yoga teachers seeking inspiration in sharing more bhakti in their classes.

The week opens with Sean & The Wild Lotus Band performing at The New Orleans Sacred Music Festival on Saturday, along with artists from many other traditions and cultures.

Starting on Sunday, mornings are focused on self-exploration and satsang through singing meditation, interactive chanting, exploration of the archetypes of the gods and goddesses, guidance on how to bring more bhakti into your life; dancing, storytelling, mythology, journaling, and love poetry from the Bhakti tradition. Through the week there will also be a couple of  bhakti on the mat asana practices led by Sean and accompanied by Alvin and Gwendolyn. Afternoons include more kirtan and supportive instruction in: basic harmonium with Sean; basic rhythm and drumming workshops with Gwendolyn; and basic guitar-and-bass-for-kirtan with Alvin. Evening celebrations include opening dinner gathering; house party with live local music; and NOLA music outing with Gwendolyn. Participants may wish to stay Sunday for The Congo Square Rhythms Festival.

Telluride Yoga Festival

We’re delighted to return for the 10th Annual Telluride Yoga Festival in the incredible mountains of Colorado.

Since 2007, The Telluride Yoga Festival has been working to bring the gift of yoga, in all of its many forms, to Telluride for a weekend filled with  world-class instructors, philosophers, scholars, artists and musicians.

Intimate and authentic weekend of workshops, classes, discussions and gatherings that celebrates yoga.  We believe that yoga (including asana, breathing, and meditation) is a tangible tool for transforming human consciousness and that there is no better place to celebrate the benefits of yoga than in Telluride.

Today, the festival brings over 600 participants to Telluride each year with 40+ presenters, over 100 offerings and offering  spectacular venues  in both Telluride and Mountain Village.

Floyd Yoga Jam

Visit www.FloydYogaJam for more details.

The love for art, community, music, nature and yoga is the basis of the event. The idea of an event was a thought that arrived like many thoughts arrive. With the passing of the days this thought became enthusiasm and joy and in 2012 it was birthed. This is how the festival was born. Presently it has gone from a 3 Day festival  toward a 4 day event, and is scheduled every Labor Day Weekend. The festival site is in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Floyd County Virginia. The flowing water and gentle mountains create a harmonious climate which pervades throughout the Festival. The spontaneous and genuine smiles of the participants, the beginning of each new day awoken by the first sun rays filtering the canvas of the camping tents, the daily rhythms marked by Yoga classes, music, hikes, fun and meditation, the evenings spent singing and dancing in the vibrant pulse of the various positive artist of Kirtan, Jazz,Hip Hop, Reggae, World Electronic, Country, Blue Grass, Indie, Rock and more, is an experience more to be lived than to be described.  1day or all 4days, visit Floyd Yoga Jam and have yourselves an experience that will nurture your soul for many moons.
