with Wade Gotwals
What is Bhakti yoga? Bhakti means “devotion” or “love” and this path contains various practices to unite the practitioner with the Divine. Bhakti Yoga is considered one the easiest yogic paths to master and the most direct methods to experience the unity of mind, body and spirit, without a lot of physical asana, the only requirement for Bhakti Yoga is an open, loving heart. We will explore the stories of a few of the Hindu deities and the corresponding mantras. Using these mantras to practice the joyful art of Kirtan (“singing” devotional songs, usually practiced in a call-and-response group format with musical instruments.) Also exploring the subtleties of the energetic body (chakras) and ‘feeling’ how the mantras are experienced in the body.
