yogic partying on new year's day

i seriously thought i'd had all this weekend's new year's happenings taken care of when i posted the christmas / new year's day class schedules last week. little did i know that almost everyone would come up with last-minute yoga celebrations/classes/whatever!

so here's a compilation of what i've found so far. i'm sure more updates will be posted between now and saturday morning (aka the morning of new year's eve, aka the very-very-last-minute). so stay tuned, as always.

and if your favorite event didn't make it to this list, feel free to share it with everyone by posting it on the accidental yogist facebook page. thanks!

on a side note -- yes, the rose parade in pasadena is traditionally held on january 1st, but exceptions are made when that date falls on a sunday:

"The Tournament of Roses is a tradition full of traditions, one of which is our "Never on Sunday" policy. In 1893, officials decided to move the parade to Monday, January 2 to avoid frightening horses tethered outside local churches and thus interfering with worship services. As a result of this reverent gesture, speculation abounds as to the rare instances of rainfall on New Year's Day (only ten times in Rose Parade history), prompting some to ask the Tournament about its special pact with a "friend upstairs." ~ pasadena tournament of roses website

which means that if you plan to go anywhere near pasadena on MONDAY january 2nd, steer clear of the parade route as well as all access routes to it from the nearby freeways. just to show you how chaotic it's expected to get, yoga house has announced that they'll be closed the morning of jan 2nd. a wise move, if you ask me.

Bringing in the Aquarian Age with Wahe Guru Kaur and friends
Saturday, December 31 5:00 – 8:00 pm

A joyfully cathartic spiritual experience that will leave you feeling deeply peaceful and whole.
Through the use of the Healing Breath and other shamanic healing techniques, you will be taken on a journey of clearing, release and healing. You will move toward a space of clarity about your next right steps on your spiritual path. It will be an exploration into the profoundly authentic individual you are, how you are a part of sacred community and how you make a difference on the planet.
Complete and release all that you have carried with you from 2011 and set your intentions to create a fresh slate for the New Year! As we embark on the Aquarian Age, we must gather together in ceremony and celebration – to remember who we are and why we came here!
Wahe Guru Kaur and Healer Training graduates will be there to support you in your transformative healing experience.
Please bring a cushion, blanket and any healing tools you wish to use on your journey. Light snacks provided.

Remember to use the Sierra Madre Villa exit from the 210 and take Foothill Boulevard to the center. San Gabriel Boulevard is closed for the Rose Parade.

SUNDAY JANUARY 1, 2012 10am - noon
Suggested Donation $20

New Year's DAY 2012 is a sacred day to set intentions and purify anything within ourselves that doesn't serve our highest truth and love. In India, 108 is revered and celebrated as a number connected to divine auspiciousness. A Yoga Mala is any yoga practice intentionally repeated 108 times. Like adding flowers to a garland, Govindas and Radha will sensitively yet courageously lead us through the purifying and transformative ritual of 108 Sun Salutations - the full body yogic prayer to the Sun- metaphorically described as the divine light that shines at the core of our Being.

Fri 12/30/2011 6:30 PM - 10:00 PM

This course is designed for all those who want to heal themselves, serve others and uplift the planet. As we move quickly toward a time when the veil of illusion cloaking the world will be lifted, drastic changes are taking place in everyone's life. Such changes can produce great fear and anxiety. What you do and how you work with Universal Kabbalah and the laws of nature will affect the direction those changes take you, for years to come. Divine Providence watches over you as long as you follow Its laws, and fulfill the Will of God. It is our responsibility to learn this wisdom, raise the light around us with our powerful and heavenly teachings, and awaken the light of spirit and soul in others. We must lessen the distance between the head and the heart so that we are able to feel comfortable in this Age. This intensive, given for the first time, will offer the rare gift of the most applicable and effective principles of Universal Kabbalah. It will reveal time-proven formulas for protection, prosperity and self-healing. Join us for this very special and unprecedented event designed to open your heart so that your fears and doubts may progressively melt away into a healing flow of divine love that quietly radiates from your being, making you bright and beautiful like the Sun. It will reveal the cosmic blueprint that shows you how to turn to the Sun of Providence so that the floodgates of universal blessings may fly open and shower you with health, grace and opportunity.
Price: $100 by 12/21; $125 by 12/29; $150 day of at the door.
