YOGA IMMERSION


This class is taught by:

Keith Borden

Keith Borden is consistently turned on by the stillness within movement, the silence hidden in sound, and the esoteric in the everyday. I love to practice yoga, and sharing this practice that I love for the last decade has been a terrific gift. I'm very lucky. I have great teachers in my life – Jasmine Tarkeshi, Dana Flynn, David Robson, David Gellineau, Manorama, and Rabbi Joseph Gellberman – and being a student is one of the best parts of the yoga practice. The classes I offer are energetic and balanced, and are infused with playfulness and creativity. I strive to live, breathe, and offer the devotion-rich yoga that comes out of my daily home practice. I'm a singer, kirtan wallah, a bhakti yogi, and an interfaith minister. I always chant with my classes, and occasionally I play and sing during savasana. I love to experiment in my practice, and years of Muay Thai, Tai Chi, and Qi Gong have taught me that all movement is healing and complementary to my sadhana. My goal is to hold a space that fosters inner quiet, true strength, and a healthy, joyous spirit where students can re-unite with and REJOICE in their true Self.

Megan Grace

I am so very grateful to have landed firmly in the center of my dharma at this stage in my life. The "call" I've heard can be summed up by the words of Crosby, Stills & Nash - “Spirit is using me, a larger voice is calling.” My answer to that call led me to create yoga and meditation spaces, a vegan cafe, a healing space where energy medicine is administered, and a yoga school. This thriving, healing, liberating community is called Perennial - Yoga, Wisdom, Community. Perennial is offering people the time, the space and the practices that create mind, body and spiritual health. It is making it possible for them to unleash their best energy at home, at work, locally and globally. As humans we are resilient and we are fiercely and peacefully powerful when we put our minds and bodies in service to our heart. As more and more of us are putting our love into action we are creating a better life for ourself and others. I discovered yoga in 2004 and it reshaped my body and eventually my entire life because it illuminated a worldview I already knew deep down. I started teaching yoga after just 4 years of practice and became the space holder of Perennial six months later. I’m honored to extend the beauty and power of yoga and meditation to others, knowing firsthand how transformational and healing they are for me. I lead a flowing and reverential style of vinyasa yoga that is sprinkled with ancient and modern Wisdom. My hope is that you’ll leave my yoga class grounded in your body, flowing to your natural rhythm, and inspired to live wholeheartedly. I also lead meditation weekly. During this time we explore how to create a mind that serves us rather than sabotages us. I am the co-leader of the Perennial Wisdom Yoga School with Keith Borden. I am blessed to learn as much as I teach during these sessions. My life expands as I share moments with others who understand we have one wild and precious life to live! We seek inspiration, possibility, Truth and Grace and we accept that there will be some tears along the way and a whole lot of laughter.
 
What is a Yoga Immersion at Perennial?
It is a yoga class taught by a more experienced teacher and longer in length. These two features; experience and length, afford the opportunity to incorporate more aspects of the art and science of yoga into the class. It is not a class only for advanced students, although some experience and familiarity is best. It is for the student who wants to explore and be immersed in a fuller practice that includes: pranayama (breathwork), dharma talk (yoga philosophy), mudras (energetic hand seals) chanting (the yoga of sound) meditation and/or nidra (yoga of sleep). 

For students already practicing on a regular basis who wish to broaden their yoga.
