Bhakti Flow and Kirtan

With Jesselle Pena and Annapurna Devi

October 23rd 6:00 pm

Join us for a special Bhakti flow lead by Jesselle Pena and Kirtan lead by Annapurna Devi on October 23rd 6pm. This class is donation based and welcome to all people.

What is Bhakti Flow?
Emotional and energetic blocks can inhibit a person's ability to engage with their true self. It is like walking around with your eyes half closed, but still expecting to see clearly. In this class you will remove those obstacles by engaging that energy and allowing it to flow through the body using asanas and breath work. This will be a total mind, body and spirit connect. Bhakti translates to devotion, so let this be a practice where you devote yourself to your highest being of understanding. This will be an all level flow.

What is Kirtan?
Kirtan translates to narrating, reciting and singing. Annapurna will play the harmonium while singing beautiful ancient chants and songs. Later there will be a portion of call and response giving you an opportunity to explore your own voice and vibrations in this healing practice.

Who is Jesselle Pena?
Jesselle learned her first asanas from her mother—a bona fide Humboldt County hippie—and began to delve into her own practice when diagnosed with scoliosis as a teenager. Drawn to health and healing from an early age, she studied nursing before completing a 200 hour certification program at The Yoga Shack with Tommy and Lori Anderson. Her training gave her a firm grounding in the science of yoga while still embracing the softer spiritual side. She now strives to give this balance to others and help them along their own path of health and wellness. She opened up Yoga Shine in 2015 and has enjoyed being a part of the community of amazing yogis. Her teaching style is colored by her playful energy and her belief that yoga is for everyone.

Who is Annapurna Devi?
Annapurna Devi received her spiritual name from her TM meditation
teacher Sri John Karuna in 1992. At this same time she was immersing herself in the study of massage/body work at the Body Therapy Institute in Santa Barbara. She has been exploring all types of meditation and healing for the body, mind and spirit ever since. She is now a World Chant Kirtan leader and finds that harmony through Mantra sound is transformative for all aspects of healing the heart, the spirit, the body and the mind. She created her healing business called Awakening to Harmony as a vehicle to help people transition into their best and most joyful selves sharing their gifts with the world. She uses a mentoring platform she created called Awakening to Truth and also guides people with her Personal Intuitive sessions. She is also passionate about hands on energetic healing and created her Crystal & Energy Healing sessions using
a form of energy work called the Polarity Process; a body of work by Franklyn Sills that she was introduced to at The Body Therapy Institute in the early ’90’s. To connect with Annapurna Devi and learn more about her offerings you can find her at awakeningtoharmony.weebly.com and on FB at Divine Inspiration with Heart and World Chant with Annapurna Devi. Om Shanti, Om Shanti, Om Shanti!!

Most back pain and posture problems are associated with a weak core. Look at this class as a way to target one area of the body to improve overall wellness. This class is highly encouraged for all.

The more she practiced yoga asanas the more she found freedom in her hamstrings, hips, and shoulders — and most importantly, in her life. She embraced the opportunity to live with the flow of ever-changing currents, to pause and breathe, and to see with the vision of friendliness. Stacie received her 500 hour teacher training from YogaWorks in Santa Monica in 2008 and continues to build her practice on that foundation. Every day she learns from her teachers, students, family and friends and, at the same time, has lots of fun, too.
