The key to the safe practice of yoga is an awareness of the breath and the spine. Take time to improve the function of your spine and to mobilize and stabilize your shoulder girdle to the next level.
Because many of us spend great amounts of time with our heads and shoulders in a forward orientation: i.e. working at our computers – it is not uncommon for our spines to become locked by tight superficial muscles in the upper middle back – the thoracic spine.The back strip is a safe and gentle way to bring mobility to this area of the spine using the tools of Critical Alignment Therapy plus the principles of SomaYoga.

What is chanting? Why do we do it? Join us in exploring this oral tradition of the Vedas that allows all other senses to dissolve into one, and the mind to sink into itself.
Chanting brings us into balance and aligns us with the energy of mantras through song.  As we sit together in one place, we have different thoughts. When we chant, there is one thought and one rhythm. This oneness creates a profound energy that enlivens us.  We’ll explore the art of listening and reciting with attention allowing integration of head, heart and body. The benefits include learning to read Vedic and Yoga teachings from the inside rather than the outside and refining the ability to listen, enhance attention, memory, patience and confidence around the use of our voice with a joyful community.
Kirtan Path has been singing with the greater Minneapolis kirtan community for the last 5 years. They participated in several local festivals over the years, such as the Twin Cities Kirtan Festival, Common Grounds Yoga and Music Festival, the Twin Cities Yoga Festival, India in Iowa, and the Inner Peace Festival. Kirtan Path has organized the annual New Year’s Eve Kirtan Celebration for the past 5 years.They were honored to perform at the inaugural Bhakti Fest Midwest in 2012 where they were dubbed “Midwest wallah to watch” by The Bhakti Beat. They also chanted at the 2013 and 2014 festivals.Kirtan Path released their album, “Saṃgāyati – A Gathering In Song” in 2013.

What wisdom are you bringing with you from the dark of winter? What are you awakening in yourself? Night and day are in equal balance at the time of the Spring Equinox. Spring is the season for the liver and gallbladder meridians which are associated with liver, gallbladder, eyes, blood, tendons and ligaments, anger, frustration and courage.  Opening through these meridians can lead to health, vitality and contentment.

Join Brianna for a two hour long Yin and Yoga Nidra practice that will help to clear the stagnate chi from the mind and the body. Use this humble and nurturing practice to welcome your body out of hibernation. Yin Yoga is a soft, still, deep and nurturing seated practice. It goes beyond stretching the muscles. It opens and creates space in the body while cultivating elasticity in the fascial system. Through this practice we will create space in the mind and body that will allow the unfolding of a fertile spring.

All are welcome, no experience necessary. Please pre-register and pre-pay. Contact Brianna with any questions, brianna.zeigler@gmail.com.
