Sacred Chants of India with Naren
Friday, May 13 @ 7 - 10 pm

Naren lived as a brahmachari (monk) for 14 years in the ashrams of Paramahansa Yogananda. He then founded Sangita Yoga to teach and present the sacred traditions of India, including kirtan and bhajan (Naren has released several albums), Sanskrit chanting and sacred ceremony. He also serves as an assistant pujari at the Kali Mandir Temple in Laguna Beach, CA.

Friday evening Naren will offer a traditional puja (Vedic ceremony) followed by arati (ceremony of lights) with devotional chanting and kirtan of India. Prasad (blessed food) will be shared.

Please join us for this very special event. Cost: $25
Donations will be accepted for puja as well, but not required. All proceeds go to support Naren's travels to Michigan.

Flowers and other offerings of fruits and vegan treats are accepted as well. You may bring small personal items to be blessed during the Puja.
Please bring a cushion or blanket to sit on.

Reserve your space here.

Mark Whitwell: Advanced Yoga for EveryBody
Thursday night, June 2 + Friday morning June 3, 2016


Our beloved teacher Mark Whitwell returns to House Of Yoga.
Space is limited to 36 for this intimate workshop.
This is a rare opportunity to study with Mark who studied directly
with Krishnamacharya and his son TKV Desikachar.

Yoga is direct intimacy with life, and is available to everyone.
Mark Whitwell offers yoga’s advanced practices in a way that you can integrate and make your own, whether you are just beginning to practice or have years of experience.
The workshop involves an interwoven promise:
You promise to practice yoga, and in return you receive the promise of yoga’s gifts, including health, intimacy, well-being, and joy.
In order to experience these benefits,
your yoga practice must be adapted to you, not you to yoga.
