Meditation and Music

Maris's Meditation and MusicMari taught yoga and meditation classes consistently for 33 years and facilitated retreats in California, Oregon, and Hawaii. She teaches with an emphasis on mindfulness, equanimity, compassion, and loving kindness. She interprets posture as a window to the soul, with asana serving to frame awareness and reveal resistance. Students begin to experience all phenomena as impermanent and vibratory and to allow the blockages to happiness — physical, mental, and spiritual to spontaneously dissolve in the natural way of Mother Nature. Her classes include a basic complement of asanas, pranayama, relaxation, meditation, and song. Mari also plays the harmonium, composes, and sings like an angel.

YOGA REVIEWS

A few student comments:Maris's Meditation and Music

“Just a note to tell you how much you have enhanced my life! Your teaching and just your glorious presence have been an incredible influence on me. You have opened so many doors.” — Chris Bennett

“Your Yoga Transformations recording was meditative, relaxing, yet challenging. It worked me from the inside out. I never felt I was forcing. I was moving into the postures from within in a peaceful way. An opening, loving experience which led to some personal self-discovery for me. Mari is the best.” — Ally Sheedy

“I find Yoga with Mari affords me self control of the mind, self control in action, tolerance, cheerfulness, one pointedness and confidence.” — Ray Stark

“To make time for an hour of Yoga with Mari is to make time to replenish myself physically, mentally and spiritually. The artistic and caring manner with which Mari imparts the ageless tools of Yoga — the movement, breathing, concentration and uplifting philosophy — helps me to meet life’s demands and everyday challenges with new awareness, energy and hope. Through Yoga and Mari’s magical and sensitive touch, I can experience my own radiance. It is transforming.” — Wallis Annenberg

“At the end of a Yoga class taught by Mari Gayatri, my body and soul feel deeply massaged. Mari is a gifted mentor. Her Yoga classes are my church — where I am spiritually fed and renewed.” – Shannon Rio

The YOGA JOURNAL reviews MMaris's Meditation and Music Yoga Retreatari Gayatri’s recorded teachings:

Toward Wholeness • “This tape shows you how to use guided meditations and imagery to help you shed your tensions and worries and open into a relaxed, spacious state of being. I was impressed with the detail that Mari Gayatri gives to each aspect of the body and mind during the guided meditation. Her gentle voice brings one easily to a state of calm and quiet. So quiet that I found myself in a light sleep after listening to one side. This is a treat for those who sometimes find their lives filled with tension.” –The Yoga Journal

Yoga retreat on Enchanted Rabbit Mountain

Yoga Transformations Beginners and Intermediate • “Her voice is soft and rich and her approach to hatha yoga is spiritual as well as refined, combing the meditativeness of Vipassana, the devotion of Sivananda, and the precision of Iyengar. In fact there’s not a rough edge to be found anywhere on Yoga Transformations. Give these tapes to yourself.” — The Yoga Journal

Moving on the Waters • “Gayatri is Sanskrit for hymn, and indeed this recording reminded me of a hymn to the soul. Mari emphasizes reverence for the body temple and open acceptance of all our emotions, both good and bad, as well as the world around us in attentiveness to and trust in the inner teacher, our heart and soul. I would recommend this recording to experienced students looking for relaxed practice grounded in spontaneous expression through posture and breath, mindfulness, and joyful devotion” — The Yoga Journal
