The Gathering will be an opportunity to deepen your Yoga practice and establish a daily rhythm in a Yogic way of life. We will guide you on the path of Self-inquiry and encourage you to look within and re-connect to your True Nature.
Marci and Rolf will instruct daily Mysore-style Ashtanga practice in the mornings. Rolf will guide students in early morning Pranayama sessions. Marci will teach mid-morning sessions on alignment, hands-on adjustments, restorative Yoga, modifications, moon-cycle Yoga, and adapting the practice according to the Nature and individual needs of each student. She will also discuss the importance of diet in living a Yogic life.
Ganga Puri will lecture on the Shiva Sutra, as well as Vedanta. He will initiate students in Japa Kriya and give instructions to perform specific Kriyas (cleansings) to purify the organic system. In the evenings Ganga will guide kirtan.
Dr. Nandita Shah will demonstrate how what we eat either heals or harms us, and how our food choices affect, not only our own bodies, but other living creatures and the state of our planet. This information will empower you to make choices, which create health and freedom from suffering.
Clea Chandmal will teach us how to integrate the basic tenets of permaculture into our lives. These insights can help us realize our intimate connection with all Life so that we can live in harmony and peace with our environment.

Rolf & Marci Naujokat
Narmada Devi Puri
Narmada Devi Puri Mataji’s life was a living example of bhakti to Divinity. She inspired us with her wisdom and devotion. It was a beautiful Grace to be in her presence.
Ganga Puri son of Baba Santosh Puri and Narmada Devi Puri, studied Human Consciousness and Yogic Science at Gurukula Kangri University in Haridwar. His lessons are designed to promote well being, self-awareness and control of mind and body.
Ganga will give initiation into Japa Kriya and lecture on the Shiva Sutra and Vedanta. He also will instruct students on how to perform Kriyas (cleansings), as well as lead Kirtan in evenings.
Rolf began his Yoga studies in North India in 1975 with Japa Kriya, traditional Hatha Yoga and Pranayama. He was certified to teach the Ashtanga Yoga system by his Guru, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, in 1996 and practices the fourth series. Beginning in 1990, he studied in Mysore for 3-6 months of every year for 16 years.
Marci has been practicing Yoga since 1990. Her teaching blends the Ashtanga system with an awareness of alignment. For students who have injuries or physical limitations, she uses modifications to support a non-aggressive approach toward the practice.
Dr. Nandita Shah
Dr. Shah has been practicing homeopathy for over 25 years. She believes we can each be our own doctor and that disease can be a path to awakening our consciousness if we are willing to listen to the symptoms, sensations and alterations in the function of our bodies. Healing means to ‘make whole.’ Because we are interconnected, when we heal ourselves all other beings on the planet are healed and we create a more harmonious and just society.
Clea studied Permaculture with Bill Mollison, Geoff Lawton and Greg Knibbs in 2008. Her education is in biological sciences and she specializes in plant science. She will teach Permaculture and kitchen gardening, as well as simple LIVE food preparation.
