Why You Should Go To Sat Nam Fest, Pt. 1

Are you one of those naughty yogis who never sets foot into a classroom or practices with another yogi?

Okay, this doesn’t make you naughty. Doing yoga at all, by yourself, from videos or books or memory, actually makes you pretty awesome…but admittedly we could all use some yogi community every now and then, and the more the better really.

That’s why all these yoga festivals are so important. Those who don’t have a home studio get to experience the community aspect of the yoga environment. This video in particular will help you feel those vibes and hopefully buy a ticket, because it’s much more fun in person. For information on buying a ticket to Sat Nam Fest look beneath the video.

Sat Nam Fest, Sept 13-16 Waynesboro, PN, www.satnamfest.com and use the code SFEMERA for a $25 discount, because you are special. 🙂

~~Sat Nam and see you there?

Kundalini Yoga Music Picks

Practicing kundalini yoga at home can be a delicate practice.  Especially if you are not living alone.  Music is important, especially during sadhana.  This morning I discovered a new favorite and I blissed out to a tried and true classic.  I think these two could make up a pretty diverse session.  I listened to a few others during my sadhana and focused on chanting.

This is great for a warm-up or active kriya.

This is great for slower-paced kriyas, meditations, pranayama and deep relaxation.

I also like to choose chants that my 4-year-old can sing to and Ek Ong Kar is easy and pleasing.  It also produces those tingly sensations that I love so much about Sadhana.  A great start to any day!

This morning: Spinal Kriya & So Purkh
