Tresca Weinstein, editor - Yoga Bulletin of the Kripalu Yoga Teachers Association (November 15, 2008) When Bhavani sang "Prayer to the Ocean of Life" at the 2007 KYTA conference, KYTA members repeatedly requested that she record this powerful, heart-warming song. On her new CD, Bhavani fulfills that request and adds a dozen more uplifting and soul-searching songs in which her rich voice glows against a tapestry of musical accompaniment by Linda Worster, David Grover, Mark Kelso, and others.   Belinda Bothwick, holistic therapist (October 10, 2008) Bhavani's clear, warm voice touches your soul, the lyrics fill your heart with joy and hope, and the combination transports you to places of inexplicable beauty.   Sara Meeks, yoga practitioner and teacher (December 23, 2008) 5 out of 5 stars! Music to Stir your Soul For accompaniment to Yoga practice or for easy listening while doing other activities, the deeply passionate and moving voice of Bhavani adds a magnitude of inspiration to whatever you are doing. Not only can you sing along to the beautiful lyrics as you hear the gorgeous sounds of the accompanying musicians, but you can FEEL the depth of passion and emotion of Bhavani's crystal-clear voice deep in your soul. The more you listen, the more you feel. A definite must-have for Yoga practitioners who want to add another level of beauty to their experience and for teachers who want to share that beauty with others.”

Whether your public speaking is on stage, teaching, or offering a toast, you’re not alone if you experience performance anxiety. For many, the fear of public speaking ranks higher than the fear of death. This workshop will teach you how to use the tools of breath and yoga to transform your fear into the joy that comes from authentically communicating the message of your heart.

You will learn:

~exercises to bring you present in your body before you speak; ~the body’s relaxation-producing breath, which naturally dissipates anxiety; ~and mindfulness techniques that maintain an inner focus.

“My promise to you is not that you’ll no longer feel any fear, but that it will no longer hold you back from sharing your uniqueness with the world.” Bhavani Lorraine-Nelson

It was Krishna himself who said that the simple calling out of the divine names is the best spiritual practice in chaotic times. Chanting is a breathing practice—now prescribed by doctors for their heart patients; a meditation—see how quiet your monkey mind is as you immerse yourself in the chanting; a place to put your yearning for a direct experience of the divine; and above all else, it’s cheerful. It’s also true that we that we magnify the power of the chant when we practice as a group. So join us!
