OCTOBER 29TH, 2014    |    6:30 to 8:30PM   |   PRICE: $45 ($35 Before Sept. 23RD)

Bhakti On The Mat with Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band

Bhakti Yoga can be a wonderful vehicle for infusing asana practice with more meaning, feeling, and inspiration- especially when we’re feeling burnt out, dried up, or a lack of motivation. Deepen your connection to the spirit of life by merging the heart-opening qualities of bhakti yoga with the sensuality and vitality of asana. This playful practice will include storytelling from the mythical world of yoga, love poetry from the Bhakti tradition to ignite your heart, kirtan chanting, graceful vinyasa sequences, and evocative live music. Some experience with vinyasa yoga is recommended.  Accompanied by the live grooves of The Wild Lotus Band.

Sean has taught this workshop with the band at festivals and conferences across the country including sold-out attendance at The Yoga Journal Conference,  Bhakti Fest, and Denver Chant Fest. For more info visit www.SeanJohnsonAndTheWildLotusBand.com

What others are saying about Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band:

“A joy to listen to whether you’re a yogi or anyone who appreciates wildly creative music.” – Yoga Journal

“Their music will ignite the world…a hybrid of East and West that will bring joy to your heart and get your body boogieing.” – Yoga Chicago

“Their music is capable of being energetic, grounding, mellow, tender, sweet – eerie, rapturous and blissful all at once.” – Yoga City, NYC

“If you think that a kirtan is a pious sit-still event, you have obviously not heard Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band! A very wise man (George Clinton) once said, “Free your mind and your ass will follow.” Sean, Gwendolyn and Alvin have taken those words to heart and bring a little soul to some amazing bhakti (devotional) music.” – Lisa West, Elephant Journal

“Imagine if Krishna Das and The Funky Meters teamed up on some tunes and you might get a sound similar to Sean Johnson And The Wild Lotus Band. But why try to box this talented group in, they are a bold and refreshing face in Kirtan style music.” – Namaste Y’all

“Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus band have reinvented kirtan into an undoubtedly American sound.” – Elephant Journal

“Johnson’s music and teachings pay homage to the ancient lineage but also serve as a breathing art form. The talented singer acts like a beacon for Bhakti yoga.” – Tess Ghilaga, Fit Yoga Magazine

“Sean Johnson’s kirtan will ignite the world! Starting on slow simmer, Calling The Spirits is a jazzy hybrid of East and West that will bring joy to your heart and get your body boogieing!” -Yoga Chicago Magazine

“Perhaps the most powerful version of “I’ll Fly Away” at the New Orleans Jazz Festival came from Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band. As he droned it as a private dirge in the Lagniappe Stage, his intensity silenced the talkers and sat those who wanted to dance or rhythmically clap, which would have forced a beat on a version that worked just fine without one.” – Alex Rawls, Offbeat Magazine

“The band takes the essence of the bayou and merges it with Indian spiritual music for a sound that bubbles with soul and unbridled passion.” – Dan Cowan, Music Design In Review

“Some serious energy flowing in every chant—there is plenty of sweetness and devotion here.”- Michael Mollura, LA Yoga Magazine

“Their music has always moved and astonished me. The melding of the depth of mantra with rockin’ grooves soothes my American yogini soul.” – Debi Buzil, Yoga Chicago Magazine

“Truly an awesome experience! – a musical gumbo to stir your soul. Sean has the voice of a deva, an angel – and the band is full of swing, soul, rock, jazz and healing vibrations.” – Saul David Raye

“Sean’s voice is warm, soothing river of serenity.” – Jai Uttal, Grammy-nominated Kirtan singer

“Sean and The Wild Lotus Band crack your heart open into a million pieces of sweetness.” – Dana Flynn and Jasmine Tarkeshi, Laughing Lotus Yoga, NYC & SF

“Sean is living proof of the power of the hatha yogi who also understands the power of sound. This, I believe, is the future of yoga, especially in the West, where a unique yogic culture is being developed” – Russill Paul, chant recording artist and author of ‘The Yoga of Sound’
