Embodiment of the Divine Weekend Workshop

Embodiment of the Divine: Exploring Ganesha, Durga, and Shiva

In this workshop you will learn, explore, open, awaken and embody your connection to the path of devotion as it relates to the deities Ganesha, Durga, and Shiva. You will experience chants, yogic practices, meditations, and wisdom teachings for each deity and why that’s relevant to you now. 

The result of this weekend is to blossom in your own personal journey with more love, joy, connection, understanding, confidence, meaning, awareness and presence. The path of devotion and the deities are profound guides in how to live an extraordinary life and Ananda Das is honored to open this up to you.

"Embodiment of the Divine" is a life enriching experience where Ananda Das will share his most potent practices and wisdom that he has learned on the path of yogic devotion (Bhakti). With more than 15 years of dedication, devotion, and sharing his love for this path, he is so thrilled to inspire you to the next level of understanding, depth and experience. 

Why take this Workshop: 

  • Have you ever felt intimidated, overwhelmed or confused by the deities of India and their relevance in yoga and our modern times?
  • Do you feel overwhelmed by your emotions and want tools to release, transform and elevate your moods?
  • Do you love singing or listening to kirtan and would like to have a better understanding of what you are singing and why it resonates?
  • Would you like to learn more about the history, iconography, mantras and practical application of the wisdom teachings associated with each Deity? 
  • Are you a yoga practitioner who would like to experience yoga practices that specifically align you with the qualities of the deities?
  • Are you a yoga teacher that wants more understanding, tools, depth and experience with Bhakti (Devotional) Yoga in order to share it with your students?

Yoga Teacher Bio:
Ananda Das has a passion for sharing devotional yoga practices that open the heart, heal wounds, energize the whole being and deepen your connection with the divine. He loves to theme his classes with a diety, explain their archetype and make them relatable to one’s life. This helps people elevate their emotions, feelings and life circumstances to a higher perspective. By connecting with the deity in this way it imparts a transmission and empowerment for the student.
He shares Himalayan Kundalini Sattva Yoga which is a wholistic blend of postures, breath work, dynamic movements, and meditation for a potent and integrative approach. 
Ananda had been a dedicated practitioner and teacher of Kundalini Yoga as taught by the Kundalini Research Institute since 2006. In April 2020, life shifted his trajectory and he fell in love with the Sattva Yoga tradition.  He completed a 300hr teacher training along with an 18 day, 60 hour course on the Bhagavad Gita just outside Risikesh, India.  Both were taught by Anand Mehrotra, a himalayan yogic master who has profoundly inspired him on the yogic path.
In addition to his BA in international and sustainable business, he has a minor in East Asian Religions and studied yogic philosophy at the University of Oregon and the Dharmalaya (2003-2009).
