a yogi's guide to the chrismukkah holiday

Posted Dec 20 2008 5:58pm
you know you're addicted.

just because december 25th, christmas day, has been designated a federal holiday, it doesn't mean you won't be able to get your yoga fix on that day. or any other day, for that matter, during the holiday season (from hanukkah on the 21st thru new year's day on the 1st).

thanks to the nice people who work behind the desk at the yoga studios around town, you should be able to find the perfect class at the perfect time. and if you're really lucky, it'll be at a location near you.

here's what's been posted so far (for all others, check their websites):

ananda los angeles, santa monica

Please note that Ananda LA office will be closed from December 26th - January 2nd except for the New Years Celebration.

Christmas Eve Candlelight Ceremony: Wednesday, December 24th, 7:30-9pm.
Prepare your heart for the birth of the Christ Consciousness within. Beautiful music, devotional singing and a candlelight ceremony will bring you and your family deep and lasting blessings. This is a truly enchanting evening where we will all experience our oneness in Spirit and share the love that is the essence of Christ Consciousness.
Led by: Krishnadas and Mantradevi
Cost: Free

New Years Celebration: December 31, Wednesday 9:00pm-Midnight.
Seize the moment. Begin the year at a point of highest inspiration. Celebrate your accomplishments. Burn up and release whatever holds you back. Declare to yourself and to the universe your intention to make the coming year one of ever-deepening joy and fulfillment in God. We’ll chant, meditate, do extended affirmations, and burn up old energy with a Vedic fire ceremony. A powerful way in which to start the upcoming year.
Led by: Sean and Brook
Cost: Free
