Light On Lotus @lightonlotus Media

EBEN has returned from MOTHER INDIA!

Join him for his 1st class back Weds at 9am in a class we are calling THE PRACTICE.

The practice is a set sequence that strengthens the spine and opens the hips with slow movement and extended holds. The class equally focuses on philosophy and simultaneous meditative efforts to build a multi-level practice and experience.

He will also be teaching a 4 part workshop the 1st two weekends in February: YOGA IN FULLEST FORM

I am not unaware of the strangeness of yoga. It becomes especially strange when it is taken seriously because it is at that moment of commitment that we acknowledge certain repressed truths that have less to do with us and more to do with life itself. We become profound because life is profound and that is eerie. That shifting of concern from me to world, from micro to macro, from ordinary to extraordinary is a huge transition within the mind.

Yoga in Fullest Form is an opportunity to move into the full embodiment of the practice by layering posturaland meditative techniques upon each other to empower a full vision of the potential inside ordinary moments. Your practice is a technology of transformation! Let me share with you some very practical ideas that will boost your understandings of what and why yoga is what it is by dissecting the intricacies of what you are and are not doing within your yoga practice.

Here’s to clarity people!

Only ONE CLASS Sunday!
10am “Love Saves the Day” with @claudia.whitney
*a portion of the proceeds benefitting @themidnightmission

In 2002 Claudia began teaching yoga in New York City, and since then her passion for yoga, travel, and adventure has inspired her to live and teach all over the world. After living abroad for 15 years and teaching over 8,000 yoga classes in Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Australia, Claudia has returned to the U.S. and is happy to call Los Angeles home. 
When she found yoga and meditation, Claudia felt a peace that she never knew before. In her yoga classes, she desires to create a space where every person discovers a deeper connection, ignites their inner creativity and awakens to their heart's wisdom. She 's on a mission to inspire her students to connect to their spirit and intuition and live life from a place of awareness, self-acceptance, and gratitude. 
Claudia's other passions include music, art, community, leading retreats, fundraising, life coaching, big salads, lip gloss, and being a mama to her wild child, Bodhi. She is deeply grateful to all of her teachers and mentors over the years and is thrilled to be a part of the Light On Lotus family.

❄️ Winter Solstice Blessings ❄️
“Solstices are a chance to still ourselves inside, to behold the glory of the cosmos, and to take a breath with the Sacred.” -  T. Thorn Coyle

The winter solstice is celebrated by many people around the world as the beginning of the return of the sun, and darkness turning into light. The Talmud recognizes the winter solstice as “Tekufat Tevet.” In China, the Dongzhi Festival is celebrated on the Winter Solstice by families getting together and eating special festive food.

Until the 16th century, the winter months were a time of famine in northern Europe. Most cattle were slaughtered so that they wouldn’t have to be fed during the winter, making the solstice a time when fresh meat was plentiful. Most celebrations of the winter solstice in Europe involved merriment and feasting. In pre-Christian Scandinavia, the Feast of Juul, or Yule, lasted for 12 days celebrating the rebirth of the sun and giving rise to the custom of burning a Yule log.

In ancient Rome, the winter solstice was celebrated at the Feast of Saturnalia, to honor Saturn, the god of agricultural bounty. Lasting about a week, Saturnalia was characterized by feasting, debauchery and gift-giving. With Emperor Constantine’s conversion to Christianity, many of these customs were later absorbed into Christmas celebrations.

One of the most famous celebrations of the winter solstice in the world today takes place in the ancient ruins of Stonehenge, England. Thousands of Druids and Pagans gather there to chant, dance and sing while waiting to see the spectacular sunrise. -  HuffPost
