Sadhana & Satsang with Jes Allen & Kevin Tobar

A daily practice or discipline is essential for growth in our development of self, spiritual experience and overall goodness in our life. There are infinite paths to the peak of the mountain. There are infinite ways to practice and actualize love, peace and joy in our lives. This workshop is about exploring some of the many ways we can do this and empower us all to have a daily spiritual practice on our own. 
.
Sadhana means you are using everything as a tool for your wellbeing. We will create an immersive experience where we will explore various tools each session. In our first edition we'll explore mantra, meditation, asana and creating a sacred space.

ABOUT:
::Jes Allen::
I have a lifetime of experience in movement and the arts. I grew up dancing, drawing, and competing in gymnastics. I was unquestionably rebellious, seeking freedom in everything. Following college I worked as a designer for several fashion brands in New York City only to soon return to my movement roots. I grounded myself in personal liberation and self expression. Yoga was the “aha” switch to all things transformative. I am an inspiration seeker, a leader and a student. The things we practice each day constantly shape the directions of our lives. I wish to see people practicing feeling free within their own body and mind. I wish to see people practicing connecting with and expressing themselves. I wish to see people practicing facing fears and allowing the courage within to surface. I aim to help others move free, be playful, lead inspiring lives and enjoy the ride.

::Kevin Tobar::
I am a lover of life and seeker of wisdom. That search started in the body through movement and quickly began to include the philosophical and spiritual. As a teenager I practiced and performed Martial Arts and studied Buddhism at the Shaolin Temple. After an injury, I turned to yoga as a healing aid and fell in love with the physical practice. In 2010 I lived in India for a year and began studying various schools of Vedanta. The experiences I had there launched a life-long passion for Vedic knowledge. After a lot of traveling I came back to New York in 2015 and was introduced to the path of Bhakti Yoga, which completely changed my life and the way I teach. 

My intention is to make the Vedic teachings and Bhakti philosophy available to everyone. I endeavor to make this sacred ancient wisdom applicable to our everyday life. I teach to the body and spirit and create space for deep revelation. I lead monthly Kirtans at Daya and all over New York. Being fully engaged in the practice of mantra and chanting I often bring this element of yoga to my teachings. My hope is to bring light to the shadows of our existence. To remove the veils of ignorance and illusion so that we may connect to the soul. To create space and freedom in the heart so that we may move away from the things that hold us back, and embrace all that uplifts and connects us.
