Attend Kirtan Teacher Training Classes with Amanda Botur

You also have the opportunity to attend the kirtan and Lunar Flow classes with one of our guest teachers Amanda Botur.

  • These classes with Amanda are available to attend as a drop in: Sunday, Oct. 18th 3:30 – 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 20th 4:30 – 5:30 p.m., and Friday, Oct. 23rd 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.
  • There will be a Kirtan evening with Amanda that is open to the public at no cost on Friday Oct. 23rd 6:00 – 7:15 p.m.

What is kirtan? “Kirtan is a very different kind of music. Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention. Everyone experiences kirtan differently, and it doesn’t have to be a religious experience. You can think of it as a sing-along. A kirtan concert is not your typical concert either. Everyone sits on the floor, although chairs are usually available. The performers are accessible, in fact there’s not much of a distinction between performers & audience. The wallah (leader) sings the mantra, and the audience sings it back. A single chant can go on for up to forty minutes. As you sing with each other you experience a deep connection with the musicians, the other audience members and yourself. And when the music stops, your mind is quiet.”

Schedule Changes During Teacher Training Oct. 4 – Nov. 6, 2015:

Here are the general schedule changes during the training, but please consult the daily schedule on MindBody Online here for details and substitutes.

Drop in For Yoga Teacher Training Individual Classes

If you can’t join us for the whole yoga teacher training/intensive October 5-29, you still can learn, breathe, meditate and practice! Please consider participating in the morning classes for a special workshop price of $45 from 9-11:45 or $60 from 8-11:45, or 3 punches for 9-11:45, or 1 punch for 8-9.

The 8-9 am yoga class will be pranayama and meditation and cost $15 while the 9-11:45 am class will be Asana (yoga poses) and cost $45. Please join us!

What is pranayama? One of the eight limbs of yoga, pranayama is a specific, intentionally induced pattern of breath control and breathwork that sharpens concentration and brings inner balance. Pranayama is one of the ways that you arrive at the doorway of meditation.

“Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or as an end in itself.”

In these pranayama/meditation classes Angela or Adi will lead you through these powerful and enriching practices.

Start a pranayama and meditation practice and experience the benefits of a more internal meditative practice. Or, challenge yourself with a longer asana practice to increase stamina and strength.

About Master Yoga Teacher Eddie Modestini:

Eddie has been doing yoga since July of 1983. His first teacher was a woman from the San Francisco bay area named Gayna Uransky. Realizing that he had found his path, he lost no time in jumping in with both feet.

His first introduction to yoga was Iyengar Yoga and he became a certified teacher in a short time. He was part of the first batch of teachers certified on the East Coast. Many of those in his group have gone on to become senior Iyengar teachers. At the time it was very hard to get certified.

Today, Eddie Modestini is what is known as a teacher’s teacher. He has been a yogi since 1983 and has been teaching for that long as well. Eddie has been certified in Iyengar yoga and spent many years studying with Pattabhi Jois, receiving a blessing to teach Ashtanga yoga. He is well versed in both systems and has an amazing eye and holds the ability to read students’ bodies and is a master of yoga therapy. “Through the experience of watching yoga heal me, I know that it has the capacity to heal the masses.”

“The treasure is buried beneath your house. Tear down your house to reveal the treasure.” –Eddie Modestini
