Bhakti Vinyasa Flow:

Natalie also teaches Bhakti Vinyasa Flow which is best experienced as “Bhakti Vinyasa with Prana Flow sequencing”.

Bhakti means devotion to something higher than just ourselves. Bhakti yoga is the path of love, devotion and service.  Whether it be toward a relationship, a family, a community, future generations or all beings, bhakti is the development of compassion, love, gratitude and equanimity. Vinyasa means to move skillfully. Whether it be from one posture to the next in a flowing sequence or mentally from suffering toward liberation, vinyasa is starting exactly as we are and moving toward achieving our greater sense of purpose/service, one breath at a time.

Natalie’s Bhakti Vinyasa Flow classes are devotionally infused yoga experience that incorporates chanting, pranayama, and Prana Flow® sequencing to open the heart and dance of your inner spirit.

This practice begins with a sound invocation with the Harmonium and chanting.  It closes with meditation and Kirtan to experience Bhava, the nectar of devotion, through union of the body, mind and soul.

These heart-based joyful classes offer an opportunity for students to experience and deepen their own bhakti-based yoga practice, and to share the blessings of bhakti yoga and satsang in a very happy, loving and supportive atmosphere.
