Yoga Camp October 2014

Had a wonderful yoga camp with beautiful fall weather.  The best thing about yoga camp was the campers!  We opened our bodies, minds, and hearts.  And everyone, including me,  learned more about yoga and living yoga.   Already looking forward to the next Yoga Camp!

Swami Lalitananda Visits Still Lake Yoga Saturday Evening

Yoga Program led by Swami Lalitananda on Saturday, August 2nd, 2014.  6-8 pm

Kirtan

Tuesday, October 22, 8:20 pm
Free

Join us after Yoga for All class for Kirtan, sacred chant.  Eric will play harmonium and lead the call and response chanting.  Simple percussion intruments will be available.

KIRTAN is the yoga practice of immersing oneself in the ancient sound vibrations of sacred mantras. It is a participatory experience, uniting the audience and the performer in the chant, bringing about inner awareness and contentment. The mantras are primarily in the Sanskrit language, allowing one to experience Kirtan in its original form. The repetition of mantra is a simple and joyful way of calming the mind and experiencing rejuvenation and well being.

We will chant Jaya Ganesha. We plan to repeat Kirtan with this chant for a couple of months in a row to help the participants get comfortable with it (which makes the experience more enjoyable!)

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra
Saturday, October 19, 10 am
For Donation

Yoga nidra means “yogic sleep” in Sanskrit. Yoga nidra is a guided meditation that allows you to relax deeply and experience a profound connection to your True Self. It is a powerful practice that does not require any meditation experience.

You will simply lie on the floor and listen to my voice. The meditation will last about 45 minutes. This practice may bring about healing on many levels and allow you to experience a sense of wholeness and connection with all things. See for yourself.

You might want to bring a small blanket and/or pillow.  Wear comfortable clothing.

EARTH DAY PARTY–VEGETARIAN POTLUCK (VEGAN FOOD ALSO): SATURDAY, APRIL 20TH, 6:00 PM. JOIN US!

Swami Visits Still Lake

Special Event at Still Lake Yoga
Sunday, January  29th, 5:00 pm

Swamini Lalitananda from Bangalore, India, is a lecturer, yoga teacher and scholar in yoga philosophy and Sanskrit.  When she visits Still Lake Yoga, she will lead us in a traditional Yoga Class and in a deep and healing relaxation exercise (Yoga Nidra).
Swamini Lalitananda, who visits the U.S. annually, operates five orphanages in and around Bangalore. All donations taken at this event go directly to support her important work. The need is very great!
SUGGESTED DONATION IS $25 BUT ANY AMOUNT IS WELCOMED!
(Please make checks payable to Still Lake Yoga)
Refreshments will be served.
Plan to attend!

This evening includes many aspects of traditional yoga:  proper exercise, proper relaxation, and Karma Yoga (the yoga of selfless service and giving).
Swami Lalitananda is of the Sivananda Vedanta Order.  The Sivananda lineage of yoga, which teachers at Still Lake Yoga are trained in, stresses a multi-dimensional approach to yoga practice including not only yoga postures and breath-work, but also meditation, proper nutrition, relaxation, and ideals to live by which include loving kindness toward all.
About Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra is a guided relaxation exercise. Participants lie on their backs and remain conscious, yet experience total relaxation of the mind and body. Studies have shown that Yoga Nidra can produce restful effects in the brain similar to sleep in a much shorter span of time. You may bring a yoga mat or towel to lie upon.
Donations to Swamini’s Orphanages
If you cannot attend the event, but would like to donate, we will be collecting donations at the studio from now until Swamini’s visit.   Thank you in advance for your generosity.  With your help, needy children can be housed, fed, and schooled.
