Dharma Mittra 'Sacred Techniques for Awakening' : Recap 2015 Yoga Journal Live NYC

To attend Dharma Mittra's 'Sacred Tecniques for Awakening' at Yoga Journal Live Conference NYC was to experience darshan.   Darshan, ( Sanskrit: “auspicious viewing”) , also spelled darshana,  in Hindu worship, the beholding of a deity (especially in image form), revered person, or sacred object.

The wisdom that this Yoga master exudes from his 70 plus years on the planet was so revered by me.  Being in the presence of what totally feels light hearted authentic teaching with an emphasis on spirituality and compassion. He adjusted me deeper into my twists and magically into smooth head stands.

It is my greatest joy to share with the students this knowledge that I have acquired over the past 50 years of practice and study. Dharma Yoga will give one’s body the power and strength to have resistance to common illnesses and diseases. With proper encouragement and increased faith in the teacher, one can improve his physical body and mental attitude rapidly, thereby igniting the higher motives of making one’s self useful to himself and all mankind. (Sri Dharma Mittra)

Sean Corn 'Spirit Speak': Recap 2015 Yoga Journal Live NYC

On Friday, April 24, 2015 I had the pleasure of attending Seane Corn's Full Day Workshop at the Yoga Journal Live Conference In New York City.

Ms. Corn's session was entitled "Spirit Speak" Finding your unique voice as a teacher.  This was perfect for me being an existing Yoga teacher.  She got us right into an asana practice for the 1st part of the day.  For me the session was challenging and invigorating.  The second half of the day was filled with thought provoking discussion.

One point she kept emphasizing was that "Yoga Teachers are so filled with Yoga that it overflows."  She shared her stories about despite the fact she was a strong and flexible Yogini she had to build her communications skills and confidence to teach.  Her style is to be amongst her students, allowing the magic to happen while sifting the energy. Additionally, Ms. Corn expressed that "Yoga is a healing Art. Inspired by whatever moves the individual teacher to be a bridge for the student."

#YJLIVE

Sean Corn shared the following prayer:
Calling in the God of your understanding... be it higher power, the creative consciousness, mother earth or the holy mother herself.  May this practice be a opportunity for healing and transformation to our mind, body and spirit.  May I step into the sacred world behind my eyes and letting go of human interpretation.  May I embody divine perception which is infinite and limitless.  May this practice be blessed and may the energy that is cultivated in all of our hearts be offered outward in prayer for equality, freedom shifts and peace for all.

YES! Yoga Has Curves, HIGHLIGHTS - Yoga Flava Google Hang Out Feb. 13, 2015 [VIDEO]

Yoga is a transformational art designed to bring our mind, body and spirit back into balance. It helps us to appreciate who we are and love the skin that we are in. Yes, Yoga Has Curves has been a dream of author Dana Smith aka “The Yoga Diva” for many years and thanks to friend and photographer Wanakhavi Wakhisi her dream has become reality.
This book serves as a testament that yoga is for EVERYbody and that no one physical size is better suited for practice. It will celebrate beautiful goddesses of all curvy shapes and sizes and finally allow the beauty of our curves to be recognized in this blessed art called yoga.
With Dana Smith, Author of YES Yoga Has Curves who was interviewed by Robin Downes Productions of Yoga Flava. : Watch the Yoga Flava TV HIGHLIGHTS from the Feb. 13th @6am Youtube Google Hang Out!
