The Yoga of Voice

Jai Uttal, Miten, Krishna Das, Wah! and many more

Where: Omega Institute
150 Lake Dr
Rhinebeck, NY
Tickets: Register here.
Website: www.eomega.org
Details: Join us for our 11th annual Ecstatic Chant retreat, one of the most popular events at Omega. A remarkable opportunity to experience some of the Western world’s leading devotional singers, this inspiring weekend nourishes the soul with a rich tradition of musical prayer and meditation.

Known in Sanskrit as kirtan, devotional chanting awakens a longing in the heart for the experience of inner silence, boundless love, and intimate union with the divine. Emerging from Hindu traditions in India, kirtan is practiced by millions of people. The call-and-response, rhythmic quality of these unifying chants kindles an exhilarating, joyful mood and is accepted as one of the surest paths to enlightenment. In recent years, pioneering musicians and seekers have brought this magical tradition to the West.

Throughout the weekend—including an extraordinary all-night Saturday session—we explore a variety of chants and chanting styles, interspersed with rejuvenating sessions of meditation, yoga, and story sharing.

Rasa Lila ~ Yoga & Kirtan Camp

with Jai Uttal & Nubia Teixeira and Guest Teacher Visvambhar Sheth

New Year's Kirtan

Where: Blue Spirit
Costa Rica
Website: www.bluespiritcostarica.com
Details: Bring in the New Year in a wave of prayer and song with the joy-filled and healing practices of chanting and Yoga! We will deeply explore these ancient devotional expressions, weaving together our hearts and voices in celebration and invocation of the Divine.

Bhakti Yoga is the path of personal relationship with Spirit, with God, with Goddess; a relationship that includes all the flavors and moods of the human heart. In the journey of Bhakti our emotions become the fuel to reconnect us with the Divine and, in so doing, to find healing and wholeness within ourselves.

Join Nubia Teixeira and Jai Uttal for a week of Bhakti Yoga. We will explore how the body, the heart, and the mind support and complement each other in our journey towards the realm of infinite love and grace. Nubia will lead the asana and pranayama sessions, which will anchor us in our bodies and open us to the meditative practice of calling to the divine. Jai and Vish will lead us in the ancient practice of Kirtan, or chanting, the heart and soul of devotional yoga. Together they will guide us in a heart- opening adventure through breath, movement and sacred sound, blending these traditions in a deep and playful way.
