Authentically connect to grace and power through the breath. Kevin’s teaching is noted for allowing periods of time to move at the pace of your own breath and body. Linking mind and body through breath helps avoid injury and leads you into Yoga’s deeper aspects, including prāṇāyāma, meditation, and mantra. Experience an integrated practice that revivifies the body, calms the mind, and leads you to a tranquil heart and the inner stillness we all long for. You will be verbally guided through this class.

“I love it. I really resonate with this class; it has all of what I’ve been looking for in yoga, especially the connection to breath. I leave feeling happy.” 
– Val Salley

 

“After Kevin’s classes, I feel so loving.  That’s why I keep coming back.”

“Thanks Kevin. It was so much fun to be in your class yesterday.  You are a master at crafting beautifully themed classes.”

NEW CHANT SERIES 2021

Sounding Sun Salutation
Learn the Sun Mantras!

6 Week Online Series
*Jan 12 – Feb 16, 2021
Tuesdays 2-3:15 Central

*These classes are recorded, so if you cannot attend some or all of them live you can still take the series on your own schedule. 

 

Magnify the power of your Sun Salutation by synchronizing the flow of your breath and postures with the seed sounds of the sun – the sūrya bīja mantras. Traditionally, Sun Salutation is amplified by the power of mantra.  By uniting breath, movement, and sound you can:

  • Potentize your practice of Sun Salutation
  • Improve your breath capacity dramatically
  • Focus your mind
  • Warm the body in a balanced way
  • Add a dimension of meditation thru the sun mantras

Shine the light of the sun sounds on your practice of Sun Salutation to unify your body, breath, mind and heart & take your practice to the next level!

In addition to the seed sounds, we’ll learn the full Sūrya Namaskāra Mantraḥ. There are 12 short verses extolling the 12 qualities of the sun. The famous bīja mantra-s, or seed sounds, of the sun are part of that. Along with teaching this mantra, I will be teaching various sun salutations, from very simple and accessible to everyone, for example in a chair, to kneeling to standing variations that can be done with the mantra-s in various ways. It’s really very interesting and enlivening! The series will be 6 weeks, possibly adding more, to have the time to learn, absorb, practice, deepen into, and enjoy this ancient and alive practice of breath, sound, and motion that can lead us to a silent mind and a still heart.

All those who have a sincere interest in learning traditional Sanskrit mantra chanting from the ancient vedic texts are welcome. Let me know if you’re interested. We’ll begin on Jan 12.

“You know how you can sort of check out when you’re doing Sun Salutation?  Chanting in Sun Salutation really made me pay attention to what I was doing!  I really liked it.” 
– Angela

 

Vedic chant is known as adhyayanam‘the art of listening’.  The focus is on precision and heart in equal measure. You are invited to experience directly how chanting can change your state of mind and emotions in a positive direction. A form of meditation, chanting is famous for improving breath capacity, memory, attention, and patience.

The only prerequisite is a sincere desire to learn and to open the heart-mind through chant.  Chanting materials will be provided.

*6 Week Online Series is $120.
