Join the Abhaya Yoga community and support Abhaya Yoga Foundation Scholarship efforts as we join forces with the incomparable bhakta, Nina Rao and her fellow musicians. Satsang, literally means, “coming together in truth”. Enjoy this afternoon of yoga taught by Tara Glazier and Nina’s live music and powerful chants with a chant workshop and Kirtan to follow. Tara, owner of Abhaya Yoga and founder of Abhaya Yoga Foundation will teach an asana class, open to all levels class. The class will focus on the healing power of the breath and how to connect that to our movements with intention. Nina will lead us in mantra repetition (japa), kirtan, and bhajan/prayers. In kirtan ( the sharing of our voices with a divine intention) we chant the names of the divine in a call and response manner, which can create a meditative quality of the mind and an of opening the heart.

AYF offers yoga, yoga education, and teacher training scholarships to diverse, socioeconomic backgrounds, with the intention that those trained and/ or educated, continue to bring yoga to underserved populations.

Nina Rao
Nina Rao learned traditional chants from her grandfather in a village in south India when she was nine years old. The chants quietly stayed with her until she rediscovered chanting with Krishna Das in New York in 1996...
