Album Release Picnic - Yoga: Exploring the Practice

Due to requests from several students a Yoga practice cd entitled, "Yoga: Exploring the Practice," was born. This CD is intended to be used by those experienced with Yoga and have gone to a regular class for a few months at least. Having a foundational knowledge of the practice of hatha Yoga (the physical practice of Yoga on mats) will help you to enjoy the practice and be in the moment. The sequence of poses utilized are designed to warm up the body, build strength overall and especially in the core muscles, open the hips, deeply cool down, and relax. Most students have rated this practice sequence as being "moderate intensity." So you can expect a challenge and a deeply de-stressing relaxation! Pick your favorite soothing music on as background noise turn on the CD and immerse yourself fully into the moment!

In addition to the hour long physical practice of Yoga, you will also find a meditation, mantra chanting, and laughter Yoga.

The mantra on the CD is a traditional Sanskrit mantra:

Ohm Namah Shivaya Gurave

Satchidananda Murtaye

Nishprapanchaya Shantaya

Niralambhaya Tejase

Sanskrit words have several English meanings. One interpretation of this mantra: is an offering of honor to the teacher that lives inside all things and every aspect of life. Every moment is an opportunity to be happy, aware, and feel bliss. This mantra suggests a link between a God, a life force, breath (whatever you call "it") and these higher states of consciousness. This mantra is about honoring the teacher within all things and feeling unity!

The CD will be released Saturday, May 1st from 12-2pm at Sweetheart Circle. Join us for some complimentary refreshments, and pick up a copy! CD's are $10 each or 3 for $25.
