    Yoga of Embodied Sound Immersion
    An Intro and Deep Dive into Sanskrit & Mantra


    Weekend 1: Embodied Sanskrit
    An Introduction to Yoga’s Sacred Language of Light
    October 5-6, 2024 |9:00am – 3:30pm


    Through this immersion of sacred sound, learn to align harmoniously with your inner truth, unfold the vibrancy of well-being you are worthy of and reap support from the blueprint of the universe that permeates the Sanskrit language.


    Sanskrit is not only the language of yoga but also the language of light and serves as a bridge to unite humanity with divinity and pure awareness. In modern yoga, little is known of Sanskrit’s mystical capacity and innate wisdom, yet one can learn to heal and align the body with grace and ease by cultivating intimacy with its sacred letters. Each sound itself is infinite in support and opens the hidden structures of the mind so you can effortlessly rise above the limitations of apara (unserving) beliefs and discover the true nature of your being as whole.


    Do you desire to…
    ● Re-inspire your practice
    ● Re-inspire your teaching, if you are a yoga teacher
    ● Rise above the misconceptions that Sanskrit is hard or dull!
    ● Honour the yogic tradition more fully and wash away appropriation
    ● Take the next step to transform the limitations of your mind
    ● Access your innate healing abilities using primal sound
    ● Enhance the potency of mantra chanting and understand why mantra carries the effects it does.


    Join April for this rich and integrative immersion, an excellent foundation for ALL yoga practitioners and teachers alike.

    ● Apply Sanskrit sound vibrations in yogic practices and meditation
    ● Learn to chant the Sanskrit alphabet with proper pronunciation and placement (using Roman alphabet characters)

    The essence of yoga first infused my life in the year of 2000 as I unknowingly walked into the depth of what would be a completely new landscape, led by such humble and wise guides that naturally the practice unfolded before my eyes. From that point on it never left my sight for long and little did I know that it would forever change the way the world appeared through my eyes.

    Without my conscious awareness the quality of union embedded in the roots of yoga began to harmonize my past impressions, trauma laid grief and un-serving beliefs that had been situated under the surface. Every practice became a sanctuary in which I was offered a glimpse of new-found freedom and tools to navigate through what at times is the tumultuous waters of life. It was and is the greatest of gifts. Though, I had no intentions of teaching this practice, and instead tried to pursue other creative outlets, eventually through the grace of Yoga the subtle strands of Dharma shone more brightly and acceptance for what was meant to be grew stronger within myself… and so here I am doing my best to simply trust that which is.I began the path of teaching in 2004 in the form of mentorship with my original teachers Deb and Lacie Cosgrove, and somehow that led me to puruse other trainings both locally and internationally in various styles and schools of thought ranging from Ashtanga to Akhanda to Kundalini. This helped me form a new perspective with which to observe, witness, see.  The foundation that was laid in that time eventually led me to sincerely study the wisdom held in Ayurveda, Sanskrit, Mantra, Meditation and the traditional philosophies that form the umbrella of Yoga while under the guidance of my dear teacher, Yogi Baba Prem and the lineage of Mahavatar Baba-ji. In 2016 I was more than humbled to receive the traditional title of Yogakovid.

    I approach my practice and teaching with an innate intention to support the elevation of consciousness. With every practice emphasizing a balance of effort and ease, the embrace of self and collective compassion, and the importance of the foundational breath. The breath as a catalyst for inner union, of body and mind and a gateway leading us towards the depth of Self and the understanding that we are all enough and we are all one.

    I appreciate and always bow in gratitude to the facets of studentship that so many of us share together. The light in me honours the light in you.
