Bhakti On The Mat with Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band Bhakti Yoga can be a wonderful vehicle for infusing asana practice with more meaning, feeling, and inspiration- especially when we’re feeling burnt out, dried up, or a lack of motivation. Deepen your connection to the spirit of life by merging the heart-opening qualities of bhakti yoga with the sensuality and vitality of asana. This playful practice will include storytelling from the mythical world of yoga, love poetry from the Bhakti tradition to ignite your heart, kirtan chanting, graceful vinyasa sequences, and evocative live music. Some experience with vinyasa yoga is recommended. Accompanied by the live grooves of Alvin Young and Gwendolyn Colman- The Wild Lotus Band. Sean has taught this workshop with the band at festivals and conferences across the country including sold-out attendance at The Yoga Journal Conference, Bhakti Fest, and more.
