Bhakti, a lifelong yoga enthusiast and former director of Anahata Yoga School in Providence, has been avidly immersed in the study of the Bhagavad Gita for the past several years. She returns to RI to share with others the wealth of understanding and experience she has been fortunate to receive.
Bhakti's lively teaching style, a creative synthesis of the experiential, informative and heartfelt, helps others easily drop into new depths of insight and inner connection. She believes there is no matter more important than "care of the soul" -Socrates, and discovering our relationship to the divine for living a meaningful and satisfying life.
Bhakti Prem instructs the following:
Complete relaxation occurs only as a result of alleviating all three levels of tension: physical, emotional, and mental.
Join Bhakti Prem and experience deep relaxation. The process is simple: Rest comfortably on your back and be guided through visualizations and gentle breath work. This induces a tranquil state of consciousness, between wakefulness and sleep, in which the body and mind attain the thorough physiological rest and revitalized health needed to protect itself against the harmful influences of stress.
No previous knowledge is necessary to enjoy this deeply relaxing experience. Anticipate leaving with feelings of being centered, refreshed, and at peace.
Some studio props are available for use. If you have your own, please bring a yoga mat, blanket, small pillow (for head), and eye pillow.
