April News & Yoga Revealed Podcast Interview with Bhavani Maki

I hope this email finds you healthy and whole. What a wonderful month we have had! It was such an incredible experience to share my teacher Rama Jyoti with our community here. Students from all over the country joined in for the workshop. Rama inspired us with the depth of her contemplation and integration of the Yoga Sutra, and her work as a global peace activist. She elevated us all with her tenderness, courage and strength in her embodiment of Yoga as a lifelong spiritual practice. Many of us were moved to tears in the realization of the way Yoga empowers us all to remember our oneness and to cultivate loving kindness and peace.


After the workshop, Rama and I, with the help of virtuoso musician and Yoga Hanalei instructor Amit Heri, gathered at a local recording studio to record the 1st and 2nd chapters of Patanjali's Yoga Sutra. This was a great honor, and although it truly stretched our endurance, we were able to complete it in one day. Rama and I both immediately felt a huge weight lift off of our shoulders. I had promised to make this available to students for well over 15 years, and Rama for decades. It was a privilege as well as a responsibility to finally bring this into completion. Now, Amit who has so generously extended his expertise, will edit it so we can make it available to all those who would like to have a copy.
