We can change though with powerful tools from Classical Yoga and Meditation. Are you ready to change it up? You will examine the origins of your core beliefs and analyze which ones are preventing you from enjoying life to its fullest. You will begin to explore new beliefs based on forgotten core values.

Brenda McMorrow Kirtan March 19 at Plasha Yoga in Erie!

Brenda McMorrow is a Devotional Kirtan (pronounced “Keer-than”) artist who has had a rich and diverse musical career (from folk to jazz to bluegrass). Now, with a deep love and recognition of the healing power of sound, she is invited to travel worldwide to share her unique blend of original, folk-inspired melodies and sacred Indian devotional chants. Brenda is known for her unique and warmly embracing style of mantra music, a mix of acoustic folk, world rhythms and ancient Indian mantras engagingly presented with a sweetly introspective singer-songwriter’s sensibility.  As spiritual teacher Ram Dass has said: “Brenda has a gift”, and her music has been touching people’s hearts worldwide.

With 5 celebrated devotional chant albums, Brenda is a featured artist on the White Swan Records roster, a Colorado label well known for it’s high-profile yoga-inspired artists like Deva Premal.  Brenda has been invited to Festivals and events across North and Latin America, Europe and Asia as part of her most recent tour schedule.

She will be accompanied by percussionist, recording artist and University of Akron music professor, Craig Narada Wise!

“Brenda McMorrow has forged her own unique and welcoming style of mantra music, blending elements of acoustic folk, world rhythms, with a sweetly introspective singer-songwriter’s sensibility.  Her new album, Igniting the Beauty, blends inspired reinterpretations of some of her best repertoire material with meditative new compositions that explore gorgeous vistas of dreamlike melodies” – Yoga Journal

Starting or Deepening A Home Yoga Practice

November 25: 6:30 to 7:30 pm

The busy person's guide to a home yoga practice at Plasha Yoga in Erie

Cost: $20

Not enough time in the day to practice at home? Too busy with work and kids? Think again. We are always at a point of choice and I will help you to choose wisely. This lively workshop will help you start or deepen a home practice with time management skills to succeed. You got this. I will assess your needs and recommend practices based on how long and how often you can practice. Ayurvedic Dosha guidelines can be provided as well. A dedicated practice with regularity, even if it is only 15 minutes daily, will yield more benefits than attending one class per week. Bring a note book or device to record your new and sustainable routine!


—Previous Event – Ayurvedic Cooking Class—

Ayurvedic Lunch and Cooking Basics
Next One TBA

Ayurvedic diet and nutrition is a complex subject and can be overwhelming. In this introduction to Ayurvedic cooking, we will keep it simple! It’s all about the spices relative to your predominant dosha. In this class we will:

  • Discuss a handout on the general recommendations for the psychological treatment of the doshas
  • Learn how to navigate the complexities of the dual or tri dosha constitution
  • Learn how to make dosha friendly dishes for summer
  • Receive chai recipes for each dosha

Ayurvedic Lunch and Cooking Basics will be hosted at the lovely home of Larry and Vicki Serafin They have a large kitchen where I will teach a cooking class followed by lunch on their deck.

They also have a large pond, hiking trails, swimming pool, and state of the art horse barn. It’s a wonderful setting for a spring and summertime lunch with like-minded people. Cost is $20 and includes two Ayurvedic dishes. You can pay me directly or register below with Pay Pal.

Please take the Dosha quiz to know your body type. Go to

Recommended books: “The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook” by Amrita Sondhi and “Perfect Balance” by Atreya.
