    Join the YTA for Mantra: Sounds into Silence at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville!

    With a history dating back centuries in India, kirtan (call-and-response yogic chanting) began to catch on in the West during the ’60s and is now all around us. Kirtan stars win Grammy Awards and pack theaters, with artists blending traditional melodies and words with rock, R&B, hip hop, and electronica. Join Krishna Das, Snatam Kaur, Jai Uttal, Deva Premal & Miten, and other kirtan luminaries as they perform and talk about how they came to this practice and have been themselves transformedMantra is a perfect introduction to this world, but experienced chanters will also appreciate the stories of people who find a sense of inner peace, reconnecting with their true selves and with others as they sing together.

    Part of the Jacob Burns "Meditative Life" film series. Watch the trailer here.

    Register by Sunday, February 10, to take advantage of this special group rate.

    With the significant increase in stress-related disorders in the Western world, teachers need to be even more aware of the many expressions of anxiety that show up in our yoga studios and in our lives. 

    This workshop will help the teacher understand anxiety from a yogic framework to better observe and respond to students who show up in anxious states. We will discuss the stress response and how it relates to anxiety, address the myths in the yoga world related to what students with anxiety really need in their practice, and then learn how to modify classes to meet students’ needs. Participants will be guided through a practice to meet the anxious mood using the key elements of LifeForce Yoga and including bhavana, pranayama, mantra, mudra, meditation, and yoga nidra. This will be an interactive, experiential workshop that will allow you to truly feel in your own body what it really means to “meet the mood on the mat.” 

    Deborah Lubetkin is a licensed psychologist with a private practice in New Jersey.
