Ganesha – The Remover of Obstacles
Workshop with Kleem
The Yoga Life Studio
1st September 2019
Ganesha is widely known as the remover of obstacles; showering prosperity and success in abundance. The Patron of Arts and Sciences, he opens doors to new beginnings. Famously known as a powerful guide navigating us through situations where obstacles prevent us from obtaining success, or when we need to channel wisdom, self-belief and faith to make those big decisions in life.
Starting with the myth and storytelling of Ganesha, we open with a grounding opening Meditation to enable us to connect within and tune our body mind heart and spirit. What challenges are we facing? What is blocking us? We will then raise our energetic vibes with a strong Pranayama practice in preparation for a strong yet deep Slow Flow as we move through to face the obstacles we want to release with love, openness and surrender.
We will journey through with live Sacred Mantra Chants, sung in align with movement, mediation and savasana – the power of Mantra actively vibrating in every cell, allowing for real transformation and deep connection in our hearts and souls.
Weaving in Bhakti Kirtan chanting whilst playing the harmonium, a classical Indian instrument; call and response chanting – can seem a bit strange initially, but just like yoga, skydiving and falling in love, it’s one of those things you need to experience to truly understand what it does and how good it can feel. Heartfelt, intuitive and playful.
With an open heart, we will end by gathering together to celebrate the festival of Ganesha with chants, pujas and dance – more about this on the day! Sonal is a Hatha and Anusara Elements registered yoga teacher; inspired deeply by myth, mudras, mantra, breath and meditation with full abundance of gratitude to her teachers for this journey. Nik is a powerful and passionate vocalist and musician, radiating the power of Mantra in every cell of his being. Kleem was born from our love for yoga, vibrational Mantra chants and mindful living, along with our desire to live life with Truth – Love – Compassion. We have carefully designed and created a unique range of yogic and spiritual inspired accessories, handpicked with love to help balance the mind, spirit, heart and soul.
