When you’re not in a yoga class, what does one do at Bhakti? Our Bhakti Bliss Girls gave us their top 5 things to do at Bhakti Fest.
Start your weekend off right by moving from imbalance to balance through sound. The vibrations shift your brain waves to a meditative state and gets your chi ready to receive.
After a tantric dance session in a Shiva Rea class, you will radiate, vibrate and feel amazing. The key is to let go of your ego, close your eyes and move your body any way that feels good.
Feel the magic in the air as the music sifts through swaying bodies and drifts through the desert air. Kirtan music is soulful, sacred and beautiful. Sing along if you can. Magic!
Adorn your feet and hands with the deep reddish-brown color of a henna tattoo. It’s a great way to experience ancient tradition while remembering your Bhakti bliss for days after you return home.
