Rock Your Heart with
Thunderhawk Kirtan

Friday, February 5
5:30 pm

Kirtan is a Sanskrit term that means "praise." It is a heart opening practice of chanting the names of the divine and other healing mantras, typically given in Sanskrit. Sanskrit is a vibratory language, meaning the meaning and power of the words are carried within the vibration of the sound of the word itself. Although knowing the meanings and stories behind the mantras will greatly enhance the experience of kirtan, anyone can enjoy the experience of chant. Requested Donation of $10.00

Bay Area Yoga Instructors

Welcome to the Bay Area Yoga Center

We offer 39 weekly Vinyasa classes that provide a vigorous workout at all levels of practice while emphasizing proper alignment and safety in a friendly and quiet atmosphere. We are rooted in the Astanga tradition of yoga which is the 8 limb path of practice which incorporates life style, movement, breath, meditation, self study and service.

Vinyasa yoga is a flowing style of practice that combines movement and breath to create a focused, dynamic practice. This style is fantastic for improving strength, endurance and flexibility. Our teachers offer personal hands on attention. They explain and demonstrate each posture thoroughly to allow students to grasp the subtle nature of the poses and how they affect the body, mind and breath. We encourage students to progress at their own pace and request movements and breath work that will enhance their routines and increase success in the practice.

The teachers at the Bay Area Yoga Center are all nationally registered at the 200 or 500 hour level with the Yoga Alliance. We emphasize continued education and participation to all of our teachers. The best teacher is a great student!

The Bay Area Yoga Center offers daily early morning, mid morning, lunch, late afternoon and evening group yoga classes at a variety of levels ranging from gentle to advanced. We also offer Private in-studio and on-site lessons with Kathleen, Pre-natal classes, Children’s yoga, Gentle yoga practice, Workshops, Visiting Teachers Series and special events classes. We offer a four week Introductory program to introduce students to the practice of vinyasa yoga in a gradual easy to learn progression.

Our studio has two separate open and peaceful classrooms, with high ceilings and warm cork flooring. Our studio offers first floor, handicap access for our senior students and for those who cannot manage steps.
