Understanding Yogic Lifestyle and Its Benefits

So why do those kundalini yogis eat so much beans and rice?
Why in the world would folks happily get up a couple of hours before dawn
every day to do yoga and meditate?
What is this yogic lifestyle all about?


Sangeet Khalsa will address these subjects and many others in a special course - "Understanding Yogic Lifestyle & Its Benefits" -- this coming Tuesday, August 27th from 7 - 8:30 pm at Yoga Phoenix, 2308 N. Richland in central Phoenix.

Learn about the best sleep cycles, how to gain the most value out of your food, what wearing white can do to enhance your protective energy shield. And so much more. It's a lecture with time also for your questions.

The fee is only $15. Whether you're a student or a teacher, this class promises to be fun and fact-filled. Sangeet is a senior lead teacher-trainer and never short on experience, wisdom or wit.

This class will be live-streamed on the internet at Sangeet's website - www.healingsource.com.
Donations are requested so we can continue to bring you these events.

Guru Ram Das Chant on August 21st

On Wednesday, August 21, 2013, the yogic community at Yoga Phoenix gathered at 6:00 pm to perform the Guru Ram Das Chant to celebrate Yogi Bhajan's birthday. There were around 11 participants.


A big thanks to Sat Nam Singh who led the chant on the harmonium. The rhythm was beautiful. We chanted together in one voice and joined as one heart. Prayers were heard and spirits were elevated. It was an absolutely divine and uplifting experience!

Thank you to all who participated. The Guru Ram Das chant will continue at different locations until Monday, August 26, the actual day of Yogi Bhajan's birthday. On that day we will have a special morning sadhana to celebrate the occasion.

Aquarian Age Readiness with Adi Singh



Tomorrow evening, join Adi Singh for more Yogi Bhajan's teachings in this Aquarian Age Readiness series. In this event students will learn a meditation to Master the Power of Prana (life force). 




“One day, you will develop the psyche of the body through meditation, and you will start living in the electromagnetic field of Prakirti, the creation around us. You have to work on the universal electromagnetic field for it to energize you. When Purkha is in your self, you will be beauty, bounty, bliss, abd virtue. Once the Purkha is found in you, you will live by Prakirti. When nature and you become one, then you become divine. You become one.”--- Yogi Bhajan

“God is pure, but you do not exist in that purity. You have to cleanse your personal mind with meditation to develop a meditative mind. Everything which is, “about me, for me, and around me,” is nonsense. Because all this is not me—there is One who is All and I am a small part of that All. If you learn this, you will be rich, fantastic, all will be done for you—you will be sovereign. God gave you mastery. You have to learn it and prove it. As you master yourself, God loves you. God’s mastery shines through your shell, and the Master—God inside—is healthy, happy and holy. When you want to flow, flow humbly, like water. Co-exist. Live with the flow” --- Yogi Bhajan (7/20/2000)

Aquarian Age Readiness starts at 7pm, goes on until 8:30pm. We are located on 2308 N Richland St (cross streets are N Richland St. and Oak St.). Come beat the heat with us (our yoga space is fully air-conditioned, set to 77 degrees), and enrich your mind with the teachings of a master!
