Floyd Yoga Jam 2015

Friday, Aug 29, early Floyd, VA Kick off Labor Day weekend at Floyd Yoga Jam with me! For the third year in a row, Friday morning (time tbd) meditation will feature a deity from the Hindu pantheon. This year, Sarasvati, goddess of wisdom, compassion, and music will grace our presence. This is sure to be a sublime weekend so get tickets now.


The Gayatri Mantra is one of the oldest mantras of which we are aware. It honors the sun and all the life-giving energy, heat, and light the sun offers. "Gayatri" refers to the meter of the verse .  It means 24.  After the initial call to earth, sky, and heavens, the next three lines are of eight beats each, equalling 24.  Hear the chant and learn the words here.
