Weekend Workshops with Katie Silcox

BHAKTIFY! Bringing Art & Heart To Your Yoga Teaching
OCT 28 & 29 - with Sean Johnson


A special workshop for yoga teachers.

Learn helpful tips and tools for cultivating more depth, imagination, and inspiration in your teaching through the arts of bhakti yoga - song, music, language, poetry, creative movement, and ritual. Sean will share some of his insights cultivated over 20 years of merging Hatha and Bhakti yoga in his teaching and practice, and also create a fun "Bhakti Teaching Laboratory" where participants can stimulate their creative teaching voice in a safe and supportive atmosphere. We'll focus on affirming and trusting our innate life wisdom as a teacher so that our inner life becomes the primary source of your teaching. From the lens of Bhakti yoga, we'll explore how to bring more energy, emotion, dynamics, and musicality to our classes. And we'll explore some simple language and techniques for making bhakti practices like chanting more accessible for a general audience. This workshop is for experienced teachers looking to infuse fresh energy and inspiration into their teaching, as well as teacher trainees.

About Sean Johnson:

New Orleans native Sean Johnson is the founder of the band and loves to inspire people through a creative integration of imaginative music, yoga, storytelling, and poetry. His passion for music ranges from a deep appreciation for the transcendental power of rock, Irish folk music, Indian and Sufi devotional music.  He’s been leading kirtan for the last seventeen years. His voice is equally influenced by his roots in New Orleans, vocal exploration of his ancestral Irish heritage, as well as study in Indian vocal music and love of the path of bhakti yoga– the yoga of the heart.

He has a Master’s degree from The Naropa Institute with a focus on teaching chant as spiritual practice, has written articles for  Yoga Journal, and is the co-curator and co-producer of Putumayo’s music for yoga series. His signature “Bhakti On The Mat” yoga workshops, often accompanied by the band, playfully weaves yoga, live music, chanting, storytelling, poetry, and ritual. www.seanjohnsonandthewildlotusband.com
