- How to Maintain the Bhav in Everyday Life: or 2. How to Transition Gracefully Out of the Bhav:
During Shakti Fest we experience ecstatic states of bliss and transcendence. Our minds are clear, our hearts are open and we connect with an essence greater than ourselves. The transition out of these sacred festivals can be a bit shocking to our systems, as we navigate the busyness of everyday life and seek to maintain this high vibrational state. This workshop will explore what happens energetically and psychologically when we enter the Bhav, as well as discuss conscious practices to maintain this state in everyday life, from morning rituals to our commute, to sattvic communication and creating harmonious relationships. Festivals provide a sacred time and space for us to dip into these higher states of consciousness, however it is up to us to maintain these states through deliberate practice every single day.
Allison and Katie opened Orange County’s first donation-based Yoga studio, Be The Change Yoga. Our aim is to make Yoga accessible to everyone and create a studio that integrates the philosophy and subtler aspects of Yoga into every class. We believe Yoga provides the antidote to the stressors and chronic illnesses caused by our modern society. Yoga is so much more than just a physical practice, it’s a mechanism for creating positive change in all aspects our lives. On our Yoga mats, we learn to slow down and balance our bodies, our breath and our minds; however we can maintain this state of ease and clarity off the mat and take it into every moment of our lives. This is what we’re passionate about! Bringing the practical applications of Yoga to life, providing tools and practices for our students to become healthier, happier versions of themselves. We both grew up in Orange County and have been teaching Yoga here for over 10 years. We have been leading 200hr and 300hr Yoga Teacher Training programs for the last 7 years. It has been our dream to create a sacred space for EVERYONE to practice Yoga and integrate the timeless teachings of Yoga philosophy off the mat. We are honored to open the first donation-based Yoga studio and center for Spiritual Nightlife in Orange County!
