Yoga philosophy is a deep and bountiful well. Come learn about two of the most important threads in Indian thought and how they can help you deepen your practice of yoga, and day-to-day experiences. 

Bhakti Yoga is the practice of devotion, and tantra is the philosophy of a non-duality between the sacred and profane. Come learn how these two paths interweave and deepen each other, and most importantly, how to practice them authentically and effectively. We will also practice one of the main methods in both threads, chanting of mantra.
