All the latest from your girl Rach.

Deep bow to all teachers.

It's about devotion.

"The yogi reduces his physical needs to a minimum, believing that if he gathers things he does not really need, he is a thief. While other men crave for wealth, power, fame, or enjoyment, the yogi has one craving and that is to adore the Lord."
           —  B.K.S. Iyengar

In Bhakti yoga, music is as much a part of the vinyasa as any Chaturanga or Up Dog. If you've never experienced it, kirtan singing is a really earthy, embodied way to get back into your breath, into your body, and out of your head. And, well, honestly — to just wail the hell out of some great melodies whilst in excellent company. More on that here.
Meet Urban Flow:
the heart and home of 
Rusty Wells and
Bhakti Flow
Have you ever wondered what the heck "Bhakti Flow" is? And what makes it different from your usual Power Flow class, anyway? 
Join me at flyingYoga for this lighthearted 2-week workshop series exploring the Basics of Bhakti. Together, we'll dive into the intertwining elements of sweat, breath, and song that combine to create a Bhakti Flow class. You can count on: an introduction to the basics of yoga philosophy, a down-to-earth overview of the Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita, a story- and art-infused guide to the major Hindu deities (like Hanuman, Ganesha, Shiva, Krishna, and more), and lots of great music, including rad tunes from bhakti-rich singers like Jai Uttal and MC Yogi. Naturally, we'll do a little of our own good strong chanting, too.
Whether you're new to yoga or a long-time practitioner, this workshop is an excellent opportunity to learn a little more about the spirit behind the Bhakti yogic tradition, which is steeped in love and devotion. My own life changed dramatically for the better in every way — work, relationships, art, spirit, strength, humor, community —when I was first introduced to my beloved teacher Rusty Wells' signature Bhakti Flow-style vinyasa. I will be forever grateful to the person who encouraged me to learn more about this remarkable blend of spirit, athleticism, song, devotion, laughter, and gratitude.

Bring your questions and your fears (if chanting makes you nervous, I'm talking to you!), your passions and your curiosities. This is an ideal offering for folks who might be flirting with the idea of doing a teacher training someday or just want to know a little more about the music, spirit, and philosophy that embody the heart of Bhakti Flow. If you are inspired by teachers like Rusty Wells, MC Yogi and Amanda Giacomini, Gandhi, Ram Dass, and more, this one's for you. Jai!!
