August 3rd: Special musical guests, Shakti Rowan and Tom Lena, on guitar, harmonium and vocals.
Shakti Rowan has been dancing and singing around the fires of devotion most of her life. Raised in an earth based spiritual tradition, Shakti was steeped in the joys of living in a community that celebrated and worshipped through playing live music, dancing together and singing the names of the divine in devotion. In recent years Shakti has studied with Sufi’s and learned the art of sacred circle dancing and a meditative practice called Zikir. Shakti now practices singing Mantras and sharing Kirtan in the Yoga community with her Beloved partner Tom Lena. A musician and Bhakti poet, Tom Lena (Tamal Krishna das) creates and offers devotional songs that nourish us integrally with moods ranging from prayerful to celebratory. For more information on Tom and Shakti’s music, workshops, and tours, please visit his website: www.tomlenamusic.com
FREE Runners Alignment Clinic
First Sunday of Each Month, 12-12:30pm
Just prior to Yoga For Runners (weekly at 12:45,) the goal of this 30 minute session is to provide information about optimal running alignment. Form in running is as important as form in yoga. Incorporating proper foot-strike, stabilizing posture, purposeful use of the arms and legs, stride length, and optimal breathing are some of the components involved in form. The bio-mechanics of running will be deconstructed in this free runners clinic.
