UPCOMING EVENTS AT BREATHE YOGA STUDIO
• HEALING VEDIC MANTRAS
Date: April 17
Time: 1-3 p.m.
Investment: $35 includes a lotus seed mala (prayer beads) from India.
A mantra is like an affirmation that has powerful results, even if you don’t know the literal meaning. A mantra is a mystical energy bound to a series of sounds. Spiritual aspirants have been using these sound sequences for thousands of years in their practices, and as a result these mantras become highly charged. The vibration that is created in the body and which emanates from mantras stimulates and harmonizes one’s subtle energy system. The class will practice using the mala (beads) and mantras together to create a powerful meditation.
• TANGO-THE DANCE OF LOVE
The Pensacola Argentine Tango Society (PATS) kicks off their “First Friday” Milonga April 1 at 8 p.m. $5 per person. Come alone or bring a friend. Beginners and singles are welcome. Thursday night classes begin April 7 at 7:30 p.m. and go through June. Go to facebook.com/tangoatpats or contact Neil Liveakos at 449-3838 for more information.
