Wind over Fire has an extraordinary healer and yogi coming from September 29th through October 2nd!
Mas Vidal, who endorses a lifestyle that heals, revitalizes, and awakens us spiritually through yoga and Ayurveda. Mas has dedicated himself to the great Vedic sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda. In this tradition, Veda is knowledge and Yoga is practice. “The root of every healing system known to man is Ayurveda,” Vidal points out. “It’s all about energy, our fundamental nature as energy. Yoga is an eternal tradition, based on universal laws and truth.” Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body-spiritual connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues today to be one of the worlds most sophisticated and powerful health systems. Ayurveda is a science of life and offers wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy.
Mas is best known for his appearance in the documentary AWAKE, about Paramahansa Yogananda and his Autobiography of a Yogi. Yogananda is noted for bringing yoga to the United States in the early 1900s.

Sun, Moon and Earth: The Sacred Relationship of Yoga & Ayurveda by Mas Vidal
Sun, Moon and Earth tells the story of the “twin sciences” of yoga and Ayurveda. Weaving in the author’s long professional and personal experience as a yoga teacher and Ayurveda practitioner, it explores how these traditions can be integrated into our lives as a practical means for balanced living and spiritual evolution. It is written for the growing audience of hatha yogis interested both in asana or postural yoga and a more conscious, Ayurvedic lifestyle.
The book’s historical sections look at the current reunion of these wrongly separated traditions and introduce readers to popular themes pertinent to the modern urban lifestyle, such as detoxification, individualized diet, and essential practices for healing mind-body fragmentation. Overall, the book presents yoga and Ayurveda as balanced solutions to the current global health epidemic and basic human dilemma of longing for spiritual purpose or dharma. Sun, Moon, and Earth contends that, if you practice yoga dharma and embrace the lifestyle wisdom of Ayurveda, improving the mind-body relationship, the Divine will take care of the rest.
Devotion in Practice for Healing and Lifestyle
Sun 9:30am – 12pm
Learn how devotion or Bhakti Yoga can be integrated into a dynamic vinyasa yoga practice. Postures and breath-work are enhanced when practiced with devotion and they can bring us into a sublime state of health and spirituality. Use of devotional bhajans (songs) and mantras in asana are sacred ways to balance prana, increase shakti (power) and balance the mind-body relationship. Practice yoga in a new way that connects you to feeling more love, compassion and devotion for all living things.
*An asana practice combined with pranayama and mantra chanting
