Dear Friends,

I have come to love the ways we can stay connected in our online community. Here are our upcoming offerings for our annual women's summer gathering, how to lead a Global Mala, a retreat for Ganesh, and a great course with Chris Tompkins. We put a lot of heart energy into these courses and your feedback has been rewarding.

In this 21-day sadhana (and five day preparation period), we will explore the channeling of creativity in our yoga practice with the generation and manifestation of creativity in our life. Each participant initiates a creative project of ANY form that will be nurtured through the 21 day sadhana period with Shiva's sadhana guidance and community interaction.

These children need our support - Please help us fill at least 5000 backpacks by August 1st to prepare these children for a successful year at school. With community unity, we can achieve our goal."

All Classes with Shiva at Exhale from August 11th - 20th will be dedicated to supporting 300  backpacks for local homeless kids in Venice. Stay tuned for our weekend events on August 15-17th to be involved in great yoga, mover and shaker sessions at Exhale and Bhakti Fest to support this great local seva started by Arjuna and Kasey.
