Bhakti Nova: A Day-Long Intensive with Nubia Teixeira
January 25, 2015 @ 12:00 am - 6:00 pm
BhaktiNova Yoga embraces Nubia’s 25 years of devotion to Yoga in its many aspect. She joyfully synthesized the practices of Bhakti Yoga with the evocative movement (poses) of the deities, the artful expression of hand gestures (mudra), the art of story telling (abhinaya) and the harmonizing sound vibrations of chanting. This powerful approach integrates the fluid and the beauty of classical indian dance of Odissi with Hatha Yoga Asana.
In this Day-Long Nubia will introduce you to new yoga poses based on the archetypical poses of the 7 main deities s of the hindu tradition. This inspirational workshop is intended for students and teachers that want to dive into the subtle, sensuous, healing, creative and freeing practice of Sacred Yoga. We’ll get an understanding of the Hindu deities, and access these archetypes as doorways into transformative practices that will create an inseparable link with Spirit in our daily lives.
Key Areas of Exploration:
- 7 creative asanas sequenced into a small flow.
- 7 Hindu Deities, their archetypal meaning and mantras.
- 7 Mudras (precise hand gestures)
- 7 Pranayama, breathing practices for health & balance
Bhakti Yoga is the practice of cultivating an inspired intimate relationship between our soul and the the Divine. Breathing, singing and moving freely in our bodies are some of the ways we find and express this connection. Being strong and flexible– physically, mentally and emotionally improves our health so we can be of service and fulfill our highest purpose in the world.
