2)    Sanskrit Chanting Workshop

Saturday February 16, 2008
2:00pm - 4:00pm
Greentree Village
4295 Garden Grove Drive (near BCIT).
Registration ends Monday February 11, 2008

I had a great response to the email I sent our about this workshop.  Thank you to all who replied.  It is my pleasure to invite Shashank Hedao to facilitate a two hour workshop in the ancient text of Sanskrit.

Moving to Canada and making a home in Vancouver a little over three years ago, Shashank was brought up in a traditional Indian family. Blessed with encounters with yogis, mystics and Sanskrit literature he holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors in Sanskrit literature and a Post Graduate degree in mass communication.

This workshop will encompass an introduction to Sanskrit including the sounds and pronunciation of the alphabet along with vowels and consonants. Chanting mantras and their meanings will be introduced and a short meditation will follow.

I love to listen to the sound of Sanskrit. The influx of rhythm and melody are beautiful to the ear. Feel the energy shift and expand in the room as we sing some of the most ancient texts.
Get to know some chants that you can practice on your own and leave the workshop feeling relaxed and invigorated.

To register, please send a cheque payable to Into Yoga in the amount of $31.50 per person (gst included) to #96-8400 Forest Grove Drive, Burnaby, BC, V5A 4B7. Please make sure your name, email address and phone number accompany your cheque.

8)    Try this Pose




I get asked for these a lot in classes.  Put a little meditation in your step and you've got a great Yoga exercise.  Going through the movements described will help open and strengthen your hips.  Balance and circulation throughout the entire body is improved.  You'll also notice how truly connected your body is.  Pay particular attention to your hands, that's right, I said your hands, as you walk in these variations.

Let your arms hang at your sides and move freely as you practice these walking variations.  Walk around the room a few times in each variation.  Keep your posture upright and your chin level with the ground.  And don't forget to monitor your hands.  Keep them relaxed!

1) raise up onto toes and begin taking little steps

2) raise up onto heels and begin taking little steps

3) turn feet and walk on outside of feet

4) letting knees knock together, turn feet and walk on inside of feet

5) turn right leg, pointing toes to right. Turn left leg, pointing toes to left, and place left foot in front of right foot. Take small steps

6) walk with toes pointing in

7) curl toes as much as possible and walk. Tighten knees

8) roll feet from heel to toe. Try to breathe harmoniously with exercise

9) keeping most of body's weight on the front of the foot, walk on the entire sole of the foot

- NOTE - When standing correctly a perpendicular line can be drawn from behind the ear to slightly in front of the outside anklebone.

Please note: Practice at your own risk.

9)    Interesting Sites

10)    Recipe

I inadvertently deleted last month's recipe from the January newsletter when I was preparing the February issue.  If you happen to have kept the January 2008 recipe, I would be delighted if you could email it to me.

The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone. ~Orison Swett Marden
