(2015) Hello! Namaste.
This year Trishula Devi taught Artistic Yoga™ at the Ogden Yoga Festival, I (Sw. Ma Shakti Devi) taught Kundalini Yoga at the Fall Colors Yoga Festival, and Hanuman Deva will be teaching Artistic Yoga™ at the Downtown Yoga Festival this weekend.
The Fall Colors Yoga Festival was very well done, and the energy was elevated. It was an intercommunity/inter-studio event that achieved the integration of different yoga teachers from different backgrounds and approaches, and this led to a sattvic (high vibrational) feeling. I was impressed and my expectations were exceeded by Fall Colors Yoga Festival. I support the growth of this festival and Julia Bryer as the perfect person for this work. I, personally, enjoyed myself very much! Many Integrated School of Yoga teachers were there too (like Ambika, Narayani, and Prem), taking classes and volunteering at the registration booth.
I had a beautiful experience doing an Artistic Yoga demonstration with a local spiritual musician, Leraine Horstamnshoff. I want to share with you some pictures and the Youtube video where you can see the moment.
I will be teaching Kundalini Shakti Yoga at 10:30 AM on Saturday October 17, 2015 at the Fall Colors Yoga Festival in Midway, Utah. At 12:45 PM, I will be doing an Artistic Yoga demonstration accompanying the music of Leraine Hortsmanshoff.
The Fall Colors Yoga Festival was created by one of my Yoga Teacher Training and Yogatherapy Teacher Training graduates, Julia Bryer. She has offered a ticket discount to the whole Integrated School of Yoga community. The link to where that ticket discount can be found online is here: http://www.fallcolorsyogafestival.com/. Simply go to the link and send us an email so we can give you the ISY discount code.
I am having a great time right now giving the Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training. I’m giving the Yogatherapy techniques in the current Yogatherapy Teacher Training, and taking lots of classes from my own students at my own ashram– it’s exactly where the energy wants me to be right now. The Hindu Meditation last night was packed. Everyone is growing… Come see me, I teach all day on Fridays and Saturdays.
September 4, 2015: ISY Intensive Yoga Teacher Training in 7 styles of Yoga – Graduation Ceremony in Turkey.
All the new graduates from the Integrated School of Yoga requested spiritual names and initiation during the graduation ceremony.
The story doesn’t end here, as the ISY in Turkey is already planning another visit in the Spring: Ma Shakti Devi will be returning to Artha Yoga Meditation to bring the SPIYS 500 and SPIYS 1000 certifications, teaching a Master of Yoga training to at least three eligible students.
Congratulations to all the new ISY Graduates!
Om Prem Ananda,
August 28, 2015: This Saturday, Turkish government is coming to meet with Ma Shakti Devi. Local newspapers will be there to cover the event. In Turkey, the government and religion are unified. Yoga is an art, not a religion, it is a science of physical, mental and emotional health that educate the feelings of peace, love, freedom, compassion and joy, specially beneficial to the people of modern times. Ma Shakti Devi will help turkish government officials figure out the best way to regulate yoga businesses in Turkey.
