    YOGA BY CANDLE LIGHT with Mark Whitwell The Buddha was a Yogi. And Christ, a Yoga Teacher.. “Love thy neighbor as thy self!” Realization Meditation or Enlightenment cannot be practiced or attained but arises naturally and spontaneously as siddhi of Yogic intimacy. EveryOne can do a Yoga that is perfect for them.

    Advanced Yoga for everyOne with live Sacred Music by Josh Brill

    1. The powerful principles of personal practice to make your Yoga entirely your own, efficient, wonderful and safe.

    2. Asana, breath and bandha… a seamless design.

    3. Asana, pranayama, meditation, Life.. a seamless design.

    4. Asana is hatha yoga and Hatha yoga is tantra, the non-dual practice. What does this statement mean? “Ha tha” equals “Strength receiving” which has profound implication to our Life, health and sex. How do we make sure our asana is actually hatha yoga?

    August 2nd, 7:30pm-9:30pm, $20 suggested donation for non-profit Heart of Yoga teaching yoga in the Middle East.

    Mark Whitwell has enjoyed a life long relationship with the teachings of Professor T. Krishnamacharya the teacher of the teachers, notably BKS Iyengar, K Pattabhi Jois and TKV Desikachar. Having studied since 1973 in the home of Krishnamacharya Mark is committed to communicating the timeless yoga principals with compassion and clarity.

    Yoga is every person’s direct intimacy with Reality, which is entirely abundant, regenerating and a nurturing power. This is yoga from the heart for the heart. It is made clear in TKV Desikachar’s book The Heart of Yoga: Developing a Personal Practice to which Mark contributed and edited. Mark’s book is Yoga of Heart: The Healing Power of Intimate Connection (Lantern Books)

    Mark lives in Los Angeles and Fiji. He travels throughout the world teaching the timeless principles of ancient Yoga wisdom. In 1996 Mark established The Heart of Yoga Association a non-profit foundation that provides yoga education around the world. Having studied with many known and unknown yoga masters, Mark is most interested in revealing powerful personal yoga and how each person easily and effectively practice.

    Joshua Brill is a healing artist devoted to using music as a medium to facilitate inner peace, expand awareness, and raise consciousness. A mystic, a musician, and a yogi, Joshua creates music that uses the sacred laws of vibration, a deep energetic awareness, and advanced looping technology via guitar and laptop to create flowing waves of expansive soundscapes that transform space.

    Joshua’s musical accompaniment for yoga practice is a delicate balace of healing ambient guitar textures and supportive dowtempo grooves. It creates a dynamic energetic container that allows for transformation and deeply healing experiences.

    Weaving sacred laws of vibration, modern technology, professional musical training, and a deep energetic awareness, Joshua is able to create music in the moment that instills peace, harmony, and balance.

    Joshua has performed and supported yoga practices across the US and internationally. He has worked with Shiva Rea, Alanis Morissette, Dr. Robert Svoboda, Sean Corne, Sianna Sherman, Dave Stringer, Wade, Morissettte, Saul David Raye, Scott Blossom, Janet Stone, Suzanne Sterling and others.
