Laurel - Ancient Yoga for Modern Times
TriYoga; the trinity of asana, pranayam, meditation


"JAYA GURU DEVI - Devi is a Sanskrit word meaning Mother Goddess, Divine Energy. The ever-expanding expression of the Absolute is called Devi, the cosmic energy. All yoga practice (sadhana) culminates in awakening this energy (kundalini) for the purpose of realizing a higher state of consciousness. In the eternal dance of energy (Shakti) and consciousness (Shiva), this sacred energy awakens and consciousness expands. One begins to flow from the heart, living by higher knowledge, filled with blissful joy" -Kaliji

Jai Krishna! 

Center for Spiritual Living Greater Dayton

Join us for the yoga of Chant; Kirtan. We use the ancient tools of mantra (sacred sound) and meditation to open to our natural Selves. This month's focus will be Krishna, the prince of LOVE, one of the most referenced forms of the Divine in the ecstatic practice of Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of devotion.  Through immersion in different settings of the joyous Maha Mantra of Krishna, the mind is purified & lifted to union with the Divine.

Chant & be happy!

The simple mantras, stories and meditations allow everyone to chant, breathe together, and celebrate our oneness of heart. 

Chant sheets are provided making the chants easy to learn.

$5 donation appreciated.
