    Just wanted to say hello, and happy holidays to you... I was listening to a 1995 Saptah tape you made and your voice catapulted me into prayer so very wonderfully, so I bought a few of your CDs and put myself on your email list. Do you have anything I could hear on sounding? I'm in LA, rather far... But anyway, God bless you!

    Hi Bhavani!, You might not remember me, but I completed one of your 5 day retreats during the summer of 2007. I was just about to start college back then, and your guidance helped me develop a meditation practice I continue to this day. Thank you for continuing to teach meditation in such a kind, accessible manner. I've recommended your program to friends and family, and I hope to join you again for another retreat soon. Wishing you all the best, Ashish

    Lorraine, I met you at Kripalu this weekend. After taking your yoga chant class I spoke to you outside of the cafeteria. Your class really had an impact on me and I am so sorry that my wife and I had to leave it early and I did not get to stay for the whole class. You were too humble I did find your CD on sale in the gift shop. I bought the meditations in chant and we listen to it all the time in the car and in the house. Do you have any recordings with the harmonium? Dan

    We attended your Meditation lecture tonight at Kripalu and thought it was such a beautifully clear Introduction and explanation of other questions about Meditation. My husband has attempted to meditate numerous times but has been very frustrated. With your suggestion to try a Walking Meditation, he feels very hopeful that this may be a path for him. So we just ordered your CD on that, and look forward to hearing your beautiful voice on the other CD you mentioned as well. After getting a taste of the Bhavani Lorraine Nelson experience tonight, so glad these CDs existed, so we can take some of your encouragement and "light" home with us. You are a gifted teacher and guide. Thank you!

CANCELED Speaking From The Heart with Bhavani Lorraine-Nelson

The Yoga Space, 82 Washington St, Keene, New Hampshire 03431

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

CANCELED Classic Kirtan with Bhavani Lorraine Nelson at The Yoga Space

The Yoga Space, 82 Washington St , Keene, New Hampshire 03431

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! @theyogaspacenh.com
