In the Bodhisattva tradition, being of greater benefit to those around you, often begins with benefiting yourself. Vivekan & Jess invite you to do just that, with a summer weekend with them in the mountains! Deepen your practice with revitalizing Bodhisattva Yoga; a combination of challenging, mindful flows, Buddhist philosophy and meditation, and the altruistic motivation to help others– with a rock and roll sensibility to top it off. With home-cooked, locally-harvested meals, the idyllic summer setting, and lots of relaxing down-time, it’s the perfect opportunity to immerse in and stabilize the yogic cultivation of ananda (joy, bliss)!

About Vivekan & Jess
Vivekan is the founder and director of Park Slope, Brooklyn’s Bodhisattva Yoga (www.BodhisattvaYoga.com). He was originally certified under a direct disciple of Swami Satchidananda and has since studied with many teachers of varying traditions. He has especially been inspired by teachers from Tibet, China, India & the West. Synthesizing these influences, Vivekan has created his own unique brand of yoga instruction called Bodhisattva Yoga. His meditation instruction, and broad yogic knowledge in general, enriches his students’ experience with his ability to tie yogic philosophy with ordinary, everyday experiences.
Bodhisattva Yoga’s Co-Director, Jess, received her teacher certification under Vivekan and continues to apprentice under his guidance. She draws inspiration from her practice, her teachers and the Dharma. Among students and private clients she is known for her warmth, encouragement and her ability to share her personal tips, tricks and hacks to make life off and on the mat a little more laid back and rock star.
