The Chakra Dhyana is a very powerful Spiritual Practice to awaken Kundalini, connect you with higher conscious, and clear and activate the 7 chakras. Using the Chakra Dhyana, we briefly chant the Bija Mantras for each Chakra. At the conclusion of the Chakra Dhyana the Oneness Blessing will be given. The Oneness Blessing is an energy transfer that initiates a neuro-biological change in the brain that connects us with spirit. It results in a growth in consciousness by creating a shift in the perception and experience of life. It is non-denominational; and awakens our connection with the oneness in everything, allowing each of us to deepen our relationship with ourselves, those we love, and with all that is.

Ayurvedic Yoga Vinyasas with Amarjyothi
Sunday, August 19th from 12:30 – 8:30PM
Amarjyothi will present Ayurvedic Yoga Vinyasas as learned from Mukunda Stiles, author of Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy, and Structural Yoga Therapy. These vinyassa were given by Krishnamacharya to Dr. Paul Copeland in individual sessions in India during 1971-1973. Dr. Copeland gave Mukunda permission to make these teachings available after decades of practice. These vinyasas can be used to balance and refine vata, pitta and kapha, and through this balance enhance a seeker's connection to spirit. The practices from Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy use elements from classical and tantric yoga to guide the practitioner into a sattvic state. These vinyasas are a wonderful flow of movements that coordinate breath and body, and can be practiced by anyone.
Amarjyothi began her study of yoga in 1985 at the Sivananda Ashram in NYC. She met Parvathi Nanda Nath Saraswati in 1998 in New Hope PA and has continued to train with her in yoga asana and tantric methodology. In 2003 Amarjyothi met Mukunda Stiles and completed her Structural Yoga Therapy certification in 2005. She has assisted Mukunda in various workshops and trainings, and under his guidance, works with local clients and students based on classical yoga and Structural Yoga Therapy. Amarjyothi is the founder and director of Yoga Loka in Frenchtown NJ, where she continues to grow community and impart the practices given to her by her teachers. She has led more than 10 training and immersion programs at Yoga Loka and is a guest teacher in other training programs. She has presented classes at Kripalu, Integral Yoga, the Hunterdon County Library Lecture Series and the NYC Open Center.

Challenges with body size and image, chronic pain, and limited mobility due to accidents showed her the profound benefit that even subtle movements with yoga can provide.
