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.”

Rosen Method Bodyworker & Movement Teacher

 

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

NEW!

We will explore and deepen into the fundamental Indian model of the human being: the five dimensions that permeate and pervade one another. Through the joyful practice of call and response chanting, lecture, discussion, and practice we will be given a lens through which to gaze with compassion and understanding for ourselves and for our fellow human beings. Series 1 will teach the chants from the source text that describe the famous Bird Model, the 5 aspects of the 5 dimensions. Series 2 will offer selected chants that elaborate and celebrate key aspects of the 5 dimensions such as faith, love, joy, and bliss. Beginners and experienced students are welcome.

 

“There are things in the body that are not of the body.”
– Dolphi Wertenbaker, MD

 

The foundation of this course will be chanting, which is the traditional way to learn the texts. Vedic chant is known as adhyayanam – ‘the art of listening’ – listening to the teacher, to your own voice, and to your own heart.  The Veda-s are the ancient texts of India and are the root of Sanskrit mantra practice. 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 memory, attention, and patience.  It also helps to lengthen the breath, one hallmark of health.

You do not have to know music or have any prior experience with chant to take these classes. The only prerequisite is a sincere desire to learn and to open the heart-mind through chant.  Classes may include some simple āsana and restoration in śavāsana.  Chanting materials will be provided.

NEW! Optional Private Session with Chanting Series

Each time you join a chanting series, you have the option of adding a private one-on-one chanting session with Kevin to focus on what you are interested in, tailoring your exploration of chanting to you. This private session is optional. When linked with a chanting series you’ve registered for the cost is $30. This is half the usual rate of $60 for a 45 minute one-on-one session.

 

Whether you’re new to chanting or experienced, you can use this session to learn the basics or ask questions. This format also allows me to listen to you, giving you personalized attention and feedback with things such as pronunciation, pitch, phrasing, and guidance for how you can use chanting in your home practice.  I listen with great care and compassion not only to your voice, but also to your heart. It’s about learning and enjoying, not performance.

Contact me directly if you want to schedule this optional private session: kevin@evolutionaryyoga.com

Cost:

12 week Series – $240 / $300 with 2 Private Sessions
6 week Series – $120 / $150 with 1 Private Session
