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.

Sean is also the founder of Wild Lotus Yoga studios in New Orleans, and Soul School, an interdisciplinary yoga and spirituality teacher training program that focuses on teaching yoga with skill and imagination. 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

Unity Is: What I Seek: Bhakti On The Mat Yoga Class with Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band Sat, Jun 24, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Bhakti Yoga can be a wonderful vehicle for infusing asana practice with more meaning, feeling, and inspiration - especially when we’re feeling burnt out, dried up, or a lack of motivation. Deepen your connection to the spirit of life by merging the heart-opening qualities of Bhakti yoga with the sensuality and vitality of asana. This playful all-levels practice will include storytelling from the mythical world of yoga, heart-felt kirtan chanting, graceful vinyasa sequences, and evocative live music. Some experience with yoga is recommended. Sean and the band have guided this workshop at festivals and conferences across the country including sold-out attendance at The Yoga Journal Conference and Bhakti Fest.
