Satsang ,a traditional activity in the Indian spiritual context , means " being with good & righteous companions ".
It felt that way this afternoon during the benefit event for Yoga Gives Back at the Electric Lodge in Venice. We were just a block away from Abbott Kinney , currently the grooviest street in LA ; but it was like being transported miles away in the studio.
The packed room had incredible energy as Jorgen led his students from Maha Brentwood , YA Sta. Monica and a contingent from Yoga World Long Beach . We celebrated the end of practice with a vegetarian Indian feast catered by Chandni Sta. Monica.
Thanks to Kayoko , Steven , Jason & all the volunteers from YGB , Ann , Ramona from Yoga World , Liz A. ( Lululemon Ambassador ) , Cara & Jessie with Lululemon Sta. Monica & Sambazon for all their assistance , support & generosity.
As our teacher expressed , it was fitting that the new YGB video was shown before practice. This served to set the intention of Seva , to receive the benefits of yoga that go beyond the physical.
Thank you all for helping us to surpass the initial benefit goal amount. Hari Om.
