Kali Punk Yoga: David Bowie #CosmicPunk Edition

In honor of our Starman’s birthday and the New Year, let’s connect with the cosmos and call on universal intelligence, kicking off our 2018 goals and desires together! Kali Punk Yoga workshops and classes combine the ethos, freedom, and inclusivity of punk rock with yoga and community in order to reduce suffering and engender healing.

What will #COSMICPUNK David Bowie workshop be like?

In this workshop, we carve out space in our lives for connecting with our inner truths and spiritual selves by tapping into in the 5th, 6th, and 7th chakras. We’ll use the elements most associated with the chakras—sound, air, ether—in order to meditate, move, and connect with our inner knowing and universal intelligence to bring forth insight and self-knowledge into our creative lives as artists and activists. With the power of sound healing—a punk rock playlist, tuning forks, and ambient sounds—we’ll integrate our intentions as a community en masse. A yoga zine and crystal punk gift bag will be provided to set and share intentions.

WHAT WE’LL COVER:

Community Discussion:

– How to use the language and philosophy of yoga to communicate and connect more deeply with our inner perception, spiritual selves, and universal intelligence

Taleen Kali is a musician, writer, artist, and yogi, teaching #PUNKROCKYOGA and #HANGOVERYOGA yoga classes, workshops and private clients all over the city. The Kali Punk Yoga practice is inclusive of all levels, bodies, genders, ages, and abilities and no one is turned away for lack of funds.

Taleen discovered yoga in 2012 at Yoga Blend in Burbank. The all-inclusive “blend” style of hatha yoga helped realign her body, mind and spirit–lessons she kept close while recovering from multiple arm injuries that led to taking a break from playing guitar. After healing and strengthening with the help of yoga, Taleen resumed playing music and decided to train as a yoga teacher, enrolling in Yoga Blend’s 200 hour teacher training. She chose the name Kali Yoga for her teachings–”Kali” being her stage name representing love for her native California, as well as a nod to the Hindu goddess of revolution. Specializing in yoga for musicians and artists, her intention is to bring mindfulness and reduced suffering to anyone who is open to allowing the power of breathwork, movement and sound into their lifestyle practice.
