"Moving thru the chakras"
“Over 30 years ago I began to practice yoga. It opened my body and mind to the power that resided in me to shape my life, and led me to explore other aspects of health and fitness. Through the years, I’ve accumulated thousands of hours of hands-on experience and an extensive background in Yoga Asana, Yoga Therapy, Meditation, Ayurveda, Anatomy and Physiology, Nutrition, Pilates, and Exercise Science.
I’ve had the opportunity to study with many gifted teachers and what I’ve learned has not only had a positive impact on my body, but has strongly influenced my approach to wellness. I’ve come to understand that good health is a balance between our spiritual being and physical action, and I share this idea with all of my students.
Whether I’m teaching a specific posture, or using yoga to help an athlete rehabilitate a torn hamstring, I approach each of these situations with the same goal – to help my clients unify and balance their inner and outer body with their mind and spirit so that they can realize their full potential”

Traditional yoga is based on the ancient science of each asanas linked with specific state of mind, body and soul. This Hatha Yoga based class is designed with mudras, and the intent is to make you feel the asana, and not just doing it. We combine each asana with sankalpa (intention) to invoke through the practice. I believe that every pose touches us at different layers – physical, emotional and spiritual. By becoming aware of this vastness beyond just the physical part, through your asanas, you can create a strong connection with your true self and your dharma (life purpose).

"Connecting our Hearts to our Sex and Our Sex to our Hearts"
FThe best sex is the kind that involves all of us: body, heart and mind. But too often I see my clients separating their hearts from their sex and missing the most exciting element that we can bring to the bedroom: our vulnerability. Taking off our clothes doesn't necessarily mean we take off our defenses! DJoin me, Dr. Jessica Tartaro, Intimacy Psychologist, for a candid lecture followed by Q&A at the Holistic Festival of Life. Whether you are single or partnered, you will leave with basic tools for dropping shame around your sexuality and getting naked emotionally, the key to making our sex lives lasting and enriching.
Often times it’s the awareness of the past that frees us in the future.
Have you experienced a c-section, either recently, or several years ago? Do things seem not quite right? Are you past the point by which you “should” have healed, but still dealing with issues, such as chronic pain or dysfunction?
Plano’s C-Section Recovery Center (CSRC) is the first and only massage therapy clinic that specializes in the relief of chronic pain and dysfunction for women who have experienced a c-section surgery. Whether a c-section was recent or several years ago, mothers frequently experience painful symptoms and mysterious health issues. While surgeons deal with acute pain occurring immediately following a c-section, they are limited in their ability to help in the long term. C-section trauma will not simply resolve itself over time. It must be addressed with manual treatment if symptoms are to improve or be prevented from ever showing up.CSRC’s massage therapy approach empowers women with better health, freeing them from debilitating symptoms that interfere with their way of life. CSRC Co-Founders John James and Lauren Cato Robertson are dedicated to treating the root of the problem with their clients, not just the symptoms, allowing them to create lasting change. CSRC employs a hybrid of manual therapy techniques, including Systemic Resuscitation, Spheroidal Breathing, Lymph Drainage Therapy TM , CranioSacral Therapy TM , and Myofascial Release TM , among others, to facilitate the body’s natural healing processes.

“Marketing Hype vs Real Results”
I personally belief the beauty industry has set us up to fail with too much misleading and unethical advertising. It really is possible to transform your skin with a healthy, holistic approach. We'll discuss why you didn't get the promised results, as well as tips to achieve your skin care goals. Eliminating acne, reversing the signs of acing, and improving the health of your skin is truly possible when the skin is given exactly what it needs. We must work with the skin, not against the skin. Also, we will be talking about skin health for oncology patients. Unfortunately, we all know someone that is currently or has previously struggled with cancer. There are products and services that they must avoid that few people are aware of.

Living a Life in Bhakti - Yoga From the Heart
We all want to be loved and to be happy. Is it really possible to be happy in the here and now? What if happiness was already alive within you, but it simply needed to be re-kindled? If so, what is the easiest way to achieve this during the modern age of materialism?
Join Rtadhvaja Swami in learning about the benefits of a practice with “no hard and fast rules.” Even though Bhakti yoga has ancient roots, the principles are fresh and applicable to life today. He will discuss simple and practical ways to take our current desires and shift the focus through the practice of Bhakti yoga, completely transforming our lives and our hearts. We can then expand from the material into the spiritual, and the activities of day to day life can become a sweet meditation.
Rtadhvaja Swami has been practicing Bhakti yoga for over 40 years. As a worldwide traveling monk, he takes the ancient teachings of the Bhagavad Gita and brings them to life in a down to earth and often humorous way. He shows that when we awaken to our original consciousness through Bhakti yoga, it allows us to live in total harmony within this universe. We are then completely content with who and what we are, and are able to find the happiness which has always been inside.
