Morning Session: 10am – 1pm Awakening The Yogi-Artist
Join Sean Johnson and The Wild Lotus Band for a Bhakti Yoga and creativity immersion that will open your heart and rekindle your soul. The morning session is designed for anyone who is seeking to open their heart and creativity. The afternoon session is designed for yoga teachers and trainees seeking to bring more inspiration to their classes. You can register for just the morning session, just the afternoon, or the whole day.
Sometimes in life and Yoga practice, we yearn for creative inspiration that reinvigorates our spirit. This intensive is an invitation to drink from the life-giving well of Bhakti Yoga, the Yoga of the heart. Sing from the depths of your soul, tap into your inner poet, and rejoice in the awakening of your unique voice and creativity during this inspirational immersion.
During the morning session, Sean and the band will create a safe, deep, and playful space for you to:
• Tune your being with singing meditation, kirtan chanting, song, and dance
• Explore your own life story more deeply through interactive storytelling, mythology, coloring, and journaling
• Spark a romance with life itself and explore the love poetry of the Bhakti tradition
The morning session will be accompanied by the live grooves of The Wild Lotus Band, featuring guitar and bass player Alvin Young and percussionist and vocalist Gwendolyn Colman.

The afternoon session is designed for yoga teachers and trainees who are seeking to infuse fresh energy and inspiration into their teaching.

We’ll explore how to bring more energy, emotion, dynamics, and musicality to our classes, including advice on how to make potent playlists that support your class flow, and tips for making singing more accessible for you and your students.
