Could I ever use Uddiyana Bandha now, plus a review of the Krishna Das doc

I mentioned briefly that our new house has a subfloor, including in the room that is/will be the practice room. For practice purposes, that means that any minor thud down on the floor results in a huge, deep bang. A major Uddiyana Bandha check, in other words. You know, the Flying Bandha. Apparently my UB … Continue reading Could I ever use Uddiyana Bandha now, plus a review of the Krishna Das doc

Here’s the Krishna Das documentary trailer

We posted a few days ago that the trailer for the Krishna Das documentary, “One Track Heart”, had hit iTunes’ trailer page. Well, you know how the Internet goes.

Krishna Das doesn’t win Grammy, does play the pre-show

I guess we missed the boat a bit by not noting that Krishna Das was nominated for a Grammy award for his album “Live Ananda.” No, he wasn’t in the best pop performance. It was for best New Age album. How much did we miss the boat? The Grammy’s happened yesterday, here in Los Angeles. … Continue reading Krishna Das doesn’t win Grammy, does play the pre-show

The New York Times checks in on Krishna Das’ past

Ahead of the screening of the Krishna Das documentary in New York on Thursday night, the New York Times sat down with the “Pavarotti of kirtan” and touched on lots of familiar territory. What’s fun is the less familiar, namely the Times getting in touch with KD’s old Blue Oyster Cult bandmates: Krishna Das said: “I … Continue reading The New York Times checks in on Krishna Das’ past

What Krishna Das and Tim Miller share in common

The Tuesday Led First class at Tim Miller’s is a special one. Tim practices along with the class, calling out the names of the poses and then the “five” for the breath count (or the appropriate number in head stand, etc.). There are eight backbends, one each for the names of Hanuman — Tuesday is … Continue reading What Krishna Das and Tim Miller share in common

Thoughts on Krishna Das kirtan: ‘lost in love’

Sunday was a bit of a local Bhakti Fest in the Confluence household. We first headed to Venice to witness the ISKON Festival of the Chariot, aka the Ratha Yatra. It’s been going on along the beach in one of Los Angeles’ better-known weird neighborhoods for 36 years. And then later we headed back to Venice … Continue reading Thoughts on Krishna Das kirtan: ‘lost in love’

Krishna Das film gets NY premiere, and we’ll be seeing him soon

Krishna Das — or KD — is coming to Los Angeles in August, hitting two of LA’s yoga hot spots: the Westside (I’d say Santa Monica, but he’ll be appearing just south in Venice) and in Larchmont, where the second (I believe) YogaWorks is. (That’s where he’ll be appearing.) His Venice appearance is at a … Continue reading Krishna Das film gets NY premiere, and we’ll be seeing him soon

You can click on the movie website for info or the film fest’s one. … Continue reading The Krishna Das documentary gets a release date: June 17
