Tina Malia & Hans Christian Live Concert

Wednesday, May 7, 7:30 pm

Yoga West                ··

TINA MALIA CONCERT with SPECIAL GUEST HANS CHRISTIAN — part of their 17-date West Coast Tour!

Tina Malia’s prodigious talent spans many musical genres and disciplines. As a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer she has distinguished herself in styles ranging from dream pop to world devotional to electronic. Her own diverse and growing catalog of albums is complemented by studio and live work with iconic artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Jai Uttal, Kenny Loggins, India.Arie, Idan Raichel and Bassnectar.

There are two unifying factors in all of this. One is Tina’s remarkable voice. An instrument of exceptional purity, it can be as tender as an angel’s sigh or as powerful as a deep ocean current. The other unifying factor in Tina’s musical universe is her vision — an all-encompassing artistic perspective that embraces many of the world’s musical cultures, languages and spiritual traditions.

“GORGEOUS...Malia has a beautiful voice and such a skill for melding it with her gorgeous melodies. I just can't say enough about her skills as a songwriter, performer, and singer... If you are new to Tina Malia's music you will be smitten." — Amy Lotsberg, Producer, Collected Sounds

The pairing of these two artists is truly a match made in heaven. Having known each other and played together on various stages nationwide, the complementary nature of their spirit-based global music lends itself perfectly to an inspired and unique musical evening. Hans will open with a solo set of cello, looping and other instruments. Then Tina Malia will take the stage with Jared May. Hans will be joining them on a handful of selections as a featured guest artist. Tina’s songs will take you to faraway lands and bring you home to yourself simultaneously.

Hans Christian is a classically trained cellist who is also skilled with several exotic stringed-instruments, such as mohan veena (adapted sitar), the Swedish nyckelharpa, and the sarangi. While Hans has thrived as producer, multi-instrumentalist, solo and touring artist, his versatility as performer and recording artist for over 25 years has created a legacy of concerts and recordings that have touched people’s hearts around the world. His unmistakable cello playing moves the listener with a haunting beauty, and his use of live looping and various ethnic string instruments expresses a universal musical language that transcends boundaries, cultures, and generations.

A live concert with Hans Christian promises a deep listening experience — filled with virtuosic playing, heartfelt sharing, and a revelation of spirit and creativity. His 2013 appearance at the prestigious AMBIcon festival was received with critical praise. Hans recently completed the 28 city widely-acclaimed Mantrafest 2013 tour, starring Deva Premal & Miten.

“Hans Christian’s music is unique. It marries sumptuous classical elegance with a raw and profound spiritual passion. Anyone who listens to it will find in it the voice of their longing and ecstatic soul.” — Andrew Harvey, Author

Sacred Space of the Mother

Sat, May 31, 2014

with Bir Kaur                 ··

A Prenatal yoga workshop for Teachers

Dive into the deep well of Yogi Bhajan’s teachings on pregnancy, child birth and motherhood. We will discuss:

- Mother as the first teacher

- Mastering the polarities; the dance with the masculine and feminine and how it relates to pregnancy and parenthood

- Learn more tips and techniques for teaching prenatal yoga

- Supporting and nurturing the family for the 40 days after birth

And much more!

This is an excellent workshop for any Teachers who have always been curious or interested in teaching prenatal yoga or women’s yoga classes.

The Teacher

Bir Kaur Khalsa O’Flaherty KRI Teacher Trainer, Prenatal Yoga Teacher, Childbirth Educator, Birth Doula. Bir Kaur can’t remember a time when she hasn’t been fascinated with pregnancy and birth. Since childhood, she’s been mesmerized by pregnant women and the birth process—a reverence that deepened upon becoming a mother in 2007.

A certified pre-natal yoga teacher since 2006, Bir Kaur also serves women during pregnancy and motherhood in her roles as birth doula and childbirth educator. Her passion lies in working with couples to help them communicate with each other and work together to create not only the birth that they want, but a strong foundation as a couple to start their family. Her philosophy that Woman is the foundation of their family and of society and that pregnancy and what happens to a mother and a developing child during that time and during the birth matters-not just for that mother and child, but for the society as a whole creates the foundation for her work. You can check out her Prenatal Yoga DVD on her website www.mabirth.com

Bir Kaur is also a certified level 1 and level 2 Teacher of Kundalini yoga, as well as a level 1 Teacher Trainer. She’s been instrumental in developing Vancouver’s internationally-certified, Yoga Alliance-registered teacher training program (which is now in its 23nd year) and has served as a director of 3HO Vancouver. In her spare time, Bir Kaur serves as both a staff of Khalsa Ladies Camp an annual spiritual retreat for women on British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast.

The 21 stages of Meditation

June/July/Sept, 2014

with Guru Raj Kaur                 ··

We are delighted to offering this fabulous course: 21 Stages of Meditation again in Vancouver.

We offered it last year and it was extremely well-received. This course fosters a deeply personal experience of your infinite nature. Meditate deeply and give yourself to the transformational process that will free you to be You –stronger, clearer and more radiant.

The Journey

The Course is divided into three two-day Journeys. We will engage in three separate journeys: each journey is comprised of seven stages, taking you step by step into a deeper level of awakening and realization. We will move through the rudimentary skills of meditation to the deeper levels of awareness and integration and finally into identity, projection and merger in the Infinite Pulse of Creation.

Though naturally we recommend that the best way to experience this journey is to participate in all three weekends, you can experience them separately.

The Teacher

This course is taught by Guru Raj Kaur Khalsa, Senior Teacher and Trainer at Yoga West. Guru Raj Kaur brought Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan to Vancouver over 40 years ago. Devoted to the purity and authenticity of this body of Teachings, she has been foundational to the development of the KRI Aquarian Teacher Training Academy. An original student of Yogi Bhajan’s, and this years’ KRI Honoree, she shares the Teachings with a warmth, humor, integrity, and radiance that elevates the spirit.

Pre-requisite

Though all are welcome into this course, it is highly recommended that you have experienced some Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan by attending several classes beforehand. Five are recommended as minimum.

First Journey: Crystallize Yourself

Sat-Sun, June 7-8

with Guru Raj Kaur                 ··

Upset? Boredom? Irritation? Frustration?

Focus. Absorption. Now we’re getting somewhere! We don’t often associate “negative” sensations and feelings like Irritation and Frustration with Meditation; yet these are very real stages that we must pass through in order to achieve Focus (Dhyan) and Absorption (Pratyahar) and ultimately fulfill the First Journey in the 21 Stages of Meditation as outlined by Yogi Bhajan: The Crystallized Self.
