YOGA & KIRTAN…LIVE!
with Jim Beckwith & Calia Marshall
Jim Beckwith and Calia Marshall create musical magic together. Both practitioners of Bhakti yoga, the path of love and devotion, their music will draw you closer to your heart and your connection with the Divine. The weaving of their sweet voices, Jim’s instrumental tapestry of everything from Indian sitar to flute to guitar, and Calia’s support with harmonium and ukulele, creates an energy that is both vibrant and soothing. They lead kirtan, teach workshops on chanting and freeing your voice, and support yoga classes with live music. Please contact them by emailing jim@livemusicforyoga.com and caliamarshall@gmail.com.

Jim Beckwith (Hanuman Das) is an accomplished musician, songwriter and teacher. His love of music and yoga inspired him to focus on bringing live music to yoga classes. Jim”s music is soulful and evocative of healing and inner awakening. He mixes mantra chants and English lyrics with a melodic and accessible tapestry of sound, exotic instrumentation and undulating rhythms. A compelling lyricist with a voice that soars from high to low with the greatest of ease, Jim is a devoted yogi and musician who focuses on Bhakti – the great yoga of the heart.

Jim has played with many of the world”s top teachers; (Seane Corn, Shiva Rea, Saul David Raye, Desiree Rumbaugh, Amy Ippoliti, John Friend, Sianna Sherman, Janet Stone, Kia Miller, Tommy Rosen, Dana Flynn and Jasmine Tarkeshi, among others).

They use traditional Sanskrit mantras, original music, spirituals and music from around the world to create a unique, dynamic sound that merges funk, rock, rhythm and blues, world grooves, chants and lush three-part harmonies.

Welcome to naada yoga.  I hope you will join us at Harmony Yoga Center in Maitland for this uplifting practice of the yoga of sound. Naada yoga can be practiced by most everyone, as we use the sound of our voices to attain meditative awareness and move energy through our bodies without physical exertion. All ages welcome! Here’s some comments from our 2013 classes:

“What a beautiful class! Not what I expected, but I was pleasantly surprised!”

“Great experience. Excellent teaching, very informing.”

“very enjoyable.”

“A great experience. Thank you.”

“I had no idea what to expect. What a wonderful,calming, slowing and peaceful experience. I look forward to learning and experiencing more.”

Join us Sundays at 3 PM and have your own wonder -full experience.
