  • Location: Prana Yoga and Healing Center 3840 S. Osprey Ave Sarasota, Fla 34239
  • Description:

    Kirtan is to gather with the intention to chant mantra.
    “What is a mantra? ” Mantra is the use of sound to affect consciousness; man means mind and tra means wave or projection. Everything in this world, down to the subatomic level, is in constant motion, vibrating. The denser a material, the more slowly it moves; often the vibration is so slow or so fast that we can’t notice it with our direct senses. This vibration is pure energy. 

    On the second Sunday of the month "Rockin" Kirtan Band host an evening of chants {mantra}. Steve, Jay, Sabrina and Margaret have a variety of chants to share. A warm and welcoming evening of music, community and food. The evening begins with veggie potluck that the community participates in by bringing a dish to share. Music follows with everyone participating in song and dance.
    Join us at 5:30 pm for food.

  • Jul 1, 2018 from 5:00am to 7:30am
  • Location: Prana Yoga and Healing Center 3840 S. Osprey ave. Sarasota, Fla 34242
  • Description:

    "What is sadhana? It’s a committed prayer. It is something which you want to do, have to do, and which is being done by you. … Sadhana is self-enrichment. It is not something which is done to please somebody or to gain something. Sadhana is a personal process in which you bring out your best."   ~Yogi Bhajan   During what are called the “ambrosial hours” (the two and a half hours just before sunrise), when the sun is at a sixty-degree angle to the Earth, the energy you put into your sadhana gets maximum results. Your world is quieter. It’s easier to meditate and concentrate before the hustle and bustle of the day begins.

  • May 25, 2018 all day
  • Location: Prana Yoga and Healing Center 3840 S. Osprey Ave. Sarasota, Fla
  • Description:

    The Use and Science of the Gong.   The most sublime instrument of the Yogi is the Gong.  It is a musical instrument, a healing tool for the nervous system and a cauldron in which you can create alchemical blends of qualities that open and develop the Inner Self.  Yogi Bhajan has asked that each ashram and yoga center have a gong and play it regularly.  He said it would help repair the ravages of drugs in the nervous system. The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases you from the torrent of thoughts and stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning.  When you come to a Gong meditation we will begin with some gentle spinal movements  to open and clear your body.  You will then lay comfortably on a mat or cushions.  Relax deeply in the sound and leave feeling refreshed.
