Dances of Universal Peace

Have you ever noticed how taking a walk, doing yoga, or tai chi or other exercises can seem to change your thought patterns and even help you suddenly have an answer to a problem you've been ruminating for hours even days?
This is also what happens when you join a circle of welcoming people gathered for the peace dances doing repetitive chants that reflect values that cross all religions.

We are happy to welcome back Jyoti and Yusuf from a retreat with Tansen to gather us in Estes Park for sacred dance. Jyoti is anticipating leading “Mother earth is a great, great ship that we are sailing on. Touch the earth , feel your worth.” Other dances include “Tane Mahuta” and “Drink with the Beloved”. Some dances are slow and soulful, others are energetic and spirited. No previous experience is required by those attending this circle of compassionate community.

The dances are offered by donation; No one is denied joining in these interfaith practices with the repetition of sacred phrases and heartfelt movements. Please bring water to revive you after the exuberant dances; also, refrain from wearing fragrances, as some people have sensitivities.

The Dances are held every third Saturday of the month at Estes Park Yoga, Park Place Mall, 145 East Elkhorn. Call Linda Bensey at 970-214-7719 for more information.

Donation: $10 suggested

3rd Saturday of every month, 4-6 pm

Kirtan

Kirtan

Kirtan is a musical experience that is based on ancient chants and has the ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention. The wallah (leader) sings the mantra and the audience sings it back. As you sing with each other you experience a deep connection with the musicians, other participants, and yourself. When the music stops, your mind is quiet.

Free, donations accepted for musicians.

Essential Oil Infused Yoga

Join us for a unique class that combines yoga for relaxation and essential oils. Essential oils are organic compounds extracted from plants and used for relaxation, beauty care, home cleaning, and for healing purposes (often called aromatherapy). Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment seeking to improve physical, mental, and emotional health.

Yoga and aromatherapy go together to improve your overall wellbeing. In this class, gentle yoga postures, breath work, and inner awareness will be practiced to enable students to feel calmer, connected, and balanced. No prior yoga experience is required. All levels are welcome. Please do not wear chemical-based perfumes or lotions.
