Enjoy an evening of sweet devotional practices! The evening will begin with a short guided blessing ritual followed by a one-hour meditative yoga sequence led by Nicole with Adrienne providing her signature sacred vocals and instrumentation. We will culminate with a 45-min kirtan and 15 minute silent meditation to soak up the «bhav» — divine energies. ($35 adv., $40 door)
Nicole teaches the complete Yoga of movement, breath, awareness, rest, and meditation. Steeped in the radical acceptance practices of Tantric Hatha Yoga and world devotional practices, Nicole delivers a simultaneously simple and sophisticated yoga practice that harmonizes the whole being and heals the personal and collective nervous system. Nicole's teaching is expressed with authenticity, depth, graciousness, humor, and a sometimes uncanny intuition of exactly what you need to feel and hear.
Adrienne Mehri Shamszad is a bay area native, devotional yogini and singer-songwriter known for her special blend of folk, soul, blues and Eastern influenced improvisational vocals. Her impressive musical range extends from the sacred to the profane, the mystical to the earthy, the lofty to the down-low, and she is equally at home with acoustic or electric, improvisation, singing gospel, Indian mantras, rock and roll, rhythm and blues and Persian classics.
