In todayʻs episode Iʻm talking to Brenda Kwon.
Brenda is an award-winning writer with over twenty-five years of teaching writing and literature.
She is also a teacher of yoga with a background as a reiki master and energy worker.
She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training with Mary Bastien, Murti Hower, and Jennifer Reuter at Open Space Yoga in Honolulu; completed her 500-hour teacher training with Rod Stryker; studied Amrit Yoga Nidra with Kamini Desai; studied Restorative Yoga with Judith Lasater and studied Ayurveda with Kathryn Templeton from the Himalayan Institute and Dr. Robert Svoboda.
As a yoga teacher she specializes in the transformative power of yoga nidra and bhakti yoga and brings an inward meditative quality to her slow-paced asana based classes.
She also leads yoga teacher trainings and workshops on Ayurveda.
Today, Brenda and I are discussing Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of love and devotion.
We talk about…
● The principals of Bhakti Yoga
● What she experienced at Ram Das’s final retreat before he passed
● The difference between love and desire
● Advice for anyone suffering from a broken heart
● How to find real love
● How to practice Bhakti Yoga
With the practice of Bhakti Yoga love never leaves your side. It is with this practice that we can learn to become whole on our own and cultivate inner peace amidst the turbulence of everyday life.
