Ashtanga Discussion Room: Ashtanga is Bhakti Parts 1 and 2

Joy and I have been running around like crazy this week trying to get Ashtanga Yoga School of Philadelphia opened by July 3rd and on top of it all Joy had a screening of her short film The Medicine Wheel in the big Apple this past Wednesday so we made a mad dash to the city!! In between all of the craziness we managed to film a three part Ashtanga Discussion Room title Ashtanga is Bhakti. I have posted the first two parts below and will post the final part on Wednesday.

One extra note: please watch, ponder, and absorb the themes in these video’s! Personally I feel that the content of these discussions is of vital importance for us continuing to mature and really enjoy the fruits of practice. The play of the universe that we are all part of has reached such critical proportions that there is an urgency to bring forth what is sacred within of each us. Even our tiny contribution is vital and essential. What we choose to focus our energies on makes a huge difference in giving ourselves and the coming generations a fair chance to play the beautiful game at a higher, highere levels. I’m calling out to all of us to bring more intentional Bhakti into our practices, more devotion that goes to to the root of us, to the heart of us, where we know what is really important and sacred. Enjoy! Om Namah Shivaya! David
