Patañjali paves the path of transforming a life of confusion into one of profound reward and inspired adventure. Sage advice prompts us to take heart in the journey of coming home to ourself. We are reminded that although we are not obligated to take the adventure of self--realization, life does not permit us to ignore it.

Patanjali encourages us to walk the hero's path and take up the reigns of our destiny as a joyful process of discovery.

Live classes include time for breakout rooms to share followed by a group discussion with our vital community that spans the globe.

Sankalpa is a statement that reflects our true nature and inner calling that requires no change or action. Yoga practices help us find resolution by settling our body and mind. When we land in our true brilliance, we can hear our heart's deepest desire. This articulation of our highest truth is known as Sankalpa, and empowers us to be absolutely alive and remain true in the nitty gritty moments of daily life.


Explore this celebration of Classical and innovative Yogasana and Sutra Psychology in a life-affirming exploration of how Yoga serves to establish embodied awareness of unfolding our unique gifts in the world.

Prana & Bhanda Practices to Revitalize Your Soul

virtual prerecorded workshop

investment: $195

Yoga Alliance CEU's available

Authentic Yogik practices are designed to locate and release blockages in the body, heart and mind. If we feel restless it is an indication that there is more Prana surrounding us than we embody. The result is that we feel unsteady, stuck, restricted or lack-luster.

Join Bhavani in a weekend celebration of Yogik practices and key insights to revitalize, and harmonize your personal energy field. We will explore asana practices, Sutra wisdom along with pranayama breath techniques.

The Granthi are psychic restrictions to our  instinctive, emotional & intellectual wisdom. 

We experience them somatically as knots of tension in our low back & sacral area, between the shoulders, or neck tension & headaches.


The psychosomatic tensions of the Granthi call us to pay attention &
appreciate their pull as a loving call to get clear & listen to our inner wisdom. 


An adventure of breakthrough, we unlock the Granthi's tensions when we ask the right questions to bring core truths to light. ​Join in an exploration of classical & innovative Yoga practices woven with timeless Yoga Sutra wisdom. Discover key insights to personal freedom in a life-affirming exploration of Yoga as embodied awareness of living full-blooded
in mind, body & heart.
