Sraddha: Backbends and Bhakti Yoga Workshop
with Kristen Coyle, E-RYT 500

Sraddha translates as 'faith' or 'belief.' It is the concept that no matter what, one is unconditionally supported by the essence of all that is. To allow unconditional faith in the universe into one's heart a strong sense of trust must be cultivated. Trust that in even in the darkest of times, all is perfect and in divine order.

Sraddha can be cultivated through the practice of bhakti (devotional) yoga. The prayer within one's heart of hearts opens and frees itself through the offering of one's breath, sweat, and voice.

This workshop will explore the elements of bhakti yoga within the context of an intelligent backbending practice, basic and creative transitions into and out of a wide range of backbends, chanting, and yogic philosophy.

Intermediate Level

Please bring a pen, paper, and a pair of socks (drills).

Join Balancing Monkey for the Hilo Walk to End Alzheimer's

There are not a lot of positive things to say about Alzheimer's. However one of the things that truly can make a difference is coming together to support each other and remove the stigma. Come together as a kula (community) to help support the people around us.

We will be walking together on September 16 at 8 a.m. at Liliuokalani Park. Donations from our community will support the local Hilo Chapter of the Hilo Alzheimer's Support Group.

The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease.

Walk with us. Sign up online or at the studio.
