Step into a world of tranquility and rhythm – it’s time for a little magic that weaves music and breath into an experience like no other. Imagine this: you, surrounded by soothing melodies and mesmerizing grooves that cradle your breath and gently melt away any lingering resistance within.

It’s more than just meditation – it’s a dance with your breath, a playful rendezvous with relaxation. Close your eyes and let the rhythm guide you, as your breath synchronizes with the gentle vibrations that ripple through your very core. Every inhale is a note, every exhale a sweet release.

As you move within this symphony of breath and sound, your body awakens to a new level of awareness. It’s like a conversation between your breath and the rhythm, each beat a whisper of calm and each exhale a sigh of tension leaving your body.

And oh, the journey is painted with bookends of sweetness. We’ll open with songs that greet your soul, setting the tone for this voyage. And when it’s time to gently return, we’ll close with melodies that linger, like echoes of a peaceful journey.

So, are you ready to embark on this symphonic adventure? Let’s dive in, breathe deep, and let the music of your breath carry you to a realm of relaxation, ease, and inner harmony.

We love our children at Mahabhuta Yoga VegFest. However, due to the sensitive nature and community ambiance of this gathering, we are asking participants to not bring children to the class portion of this event.

Mindful Yoga for Veterans is an all-levels, 90-min class that targets the symptoms of anxiety, stress, depression, PTS(d) and chronic pain.

The focus of Mindful Yoga for Veterans is for each individual to safely establish a personal baseline of understanding and self-acceptance of their current limitations and capabilities on the mat in a soft, invitational, non-judgmental, non-violent environment. 

By creating a “personal container” for self-inquiry in a relaxed state, each individual is invited to safely explore sensations in their body, the quality of their breath, and their state of mind while being introduced to basic movement and yoga postures. Students are guided through a progressive, but gentle yoga sequence that stretches, activates, and rests the various muscle groups to help release tension in the body, ease the mind, and reset the nervous system – bringing the mind, body and spirit back to a state of balance, presenting an overall sense of calm and contentment.

Mindful Yoga for Veterans is open to Veterans of ALL-LEVELS, including those who may require sitting in a chair for more comfort.

NOTE: Please bring your own yoga mat & props.

While yoga props are not “required” for practice, they are highly encouraged to use as needed to find individual comfort throughout the practice. (Yoga mat, yoga blocks, yoga strap, bolster, & blanket)

Following completion of the class, join Brian for a Veterans social in the restaurant to share your experience, get to know each other and connect.

Step into the enchanting realm of Out of Doors – a mesmerizing fusion of magic, mystery, and pure amusement. Meet the creative force behind the curtain, the spellbinding duo of John and Amy Jinks, partners in life and harmony.

Their musical journey began over a decade ago, when their melodies first intertwined like cosmic constellations. Yet, it wasn’t until 2018 that their path found its true North, and they officially embraced their identity as a band, christening themselves as Out of Doors.

The seeds of their melodies were sown amidst a tapestry of wanderlust, heartache, metaphysical ponderings, and the tender exploration of self. Each note is a testament to the chapters of their lives, a melody spun from the threads of experience and emotion.

But here’s where the tale takes a captivating twist – within this harmonious partnership, Amy opens her voice, reminiscent of ethereal whispers, draws you into a trance, guiding you through enchanting songs that speak to the heart of the human experience. Other times, she transforms into a mystical guide, leading you through breath meditations that unravel the secrets of the soul.

Collaborating creatively within the intimate dynamics of a deep bond has been a dance of challenges and blessings, a delicate waltz that ignites their music with an unparalleled authenticity.

So, there you have it, the story of Out of Doors – a symphony of love, discovery, and cosmic connection. Let their melodies caress your senses, and let their harmonies carry you through the ethereal landscapes of their shared journey.
