Join Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Banka for Satchitananda - Truth, Consciousness, and Bliss: A Jivamukti Yoga Workshop.

The first half of this workshop will be a Jivamukti class, comprised of asana, chanting, breath work, meditation and relaxation. The second half of the workshop will explore SATCHITANANDA: the nature of God is existence (sat), knowledge (chit), and mostly bliss (ananda). Sanskrit is the spiritual language of refinement. Sanskrit mantras composed of the names of God are particularly potent.

Traditional methods of mantra and japa will be explored, including Vachika japa (mantra is repeated out loud), Upamsu japa (mantra is repeated semi-audibly by moving only the tongue and lips), Manasa japa (mantra is repeated mentally without allowing the tongue and lips to move), Likhita japa (mantra is written continuously or for a fixed number of times), Akhanda japa (mantra is repeated for a specific number of times without a break, or for a fixed period of time, such as from sunrise to sunset; often performed rhythmically and congregationally), and Alapa japa (mantra is repeated mentally at all times and with every breath).
