Embodied Bliss: Yoga & Live Mantra Music
Gershone & Gina Minyard
Join us for slow flow and restorative yoga with live mantra music. Open to a deeper experience of your grounded, blissful nature!... Yoga and live music together reach where separately they cannot go alone. With decades of devoted practice and offerings between them, Gina and Gershone weave together their respective arts to invite you into communion, bliss, and presence - deeper into your heart and into connection with each other.
When two who have devoted their lives to their art join forces, the creative chemistry is contagious. Gina Minyard and Gershone Hendelberg have more than four decades of practice, teaching, and experience between them in yogic arts and bhakti bliss. Together, they commit their body, mind, heart, breath, and voice in service to the Most High and the majesty of its manifest expressions. In their offerings of yoga, music, meditation, kirtan, and satsang, they invite others into the grounding, elevating, and ever-expanding process of tuning their own divine instruments, and to come together in transformational alchemy, joyful communion, sacred embodiment, and ecstatic celebration. Join them for classes, workshops, trainings, and retreats nationally and worldwide.

Douglas Johnson & Friends
Douglas Johnson, a lifelong musician, had taught meditation and yoga for over a decade when it struck him something was missing in his offerings, music!

Douglas has studied Vedic mantras with internationally acclaimed author and teacher Russill Paul and played or practiced Kirtan directly with modern masters like David "Durga Das" Newman, Jai Uttal, and Sean Johnson.
