Overview: The meditation practices of Shambhava Yoga are “Chaitanya” practices, living practices, that were mastered by Shambhavananda and then taught to his students, who have achieved enough mastery of it to gain his permission to teach it to you. These aren’t practices from You Tube, or even from a book, they are from a real teacher, and have been refined through years of experience and daily practice in the Shambhava Tradition.  All levels are welcome to take part in these powerful and transformational practices.

Overview: Sacred Art is a powerful practice, often overlooked or misunderstood in today’s yoga culture. Making sacred art could be as serious as a Tibetan Thangka painting, which requires focus and discipline, or as playful as making jewelry. What makes it sacred is that you use your practice while making it, it makes you happy, and helps you cultivate your yoga community. We are lucky to have the guidance of world-renowned artist Faith Stone, co-founder of Shambhava Yoga, as our sacred art director of programming. Come take part and see what sacred art means to you!
