Album Notes
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 includes storytelling from the mythic world of yoga, kirtan chanting, graceful vinyasa sequences, and evocative live music. Some experience with vinyasa yoga is recommended. Sean, Alvin, and Gwendolyn have guided this workshop to sell out crowds nationwide at festivals and conferences including The Yoga Journal Conference and Bhakti Fest. Now you can experience Bhakti On The Mat in the comfort of your own home.

This Kali vs the Demons-themed practice is dedicated to awakening the presence of Kali inside you: deep primal power, tough love, fiercely standing up to protect what is vulnerable; the courage to mine your own darkness for treasure; the power to cut away that which is not serving you-- and the love, compassion, and understanding that comes from integrating the dark and the light within.

Sean puts a contemporary spin on the story and symbolism of Kali's birth and battle with the demons with entertaining, interactive storytelling. The band kicks into a live rendition of their Hey Ma Durga chant (from the album Devaloka). Then Sean guides a deep, but playful vinyasa yoga practice inspired by the story while Alvin and Gwendolyn set the mood with live improvisational music. Recorded live at The Mahabhuta Yoga Festival, Pensacola, FL, November 2013.
