    Local yoga teachers Tammy Binkley and Shantaya will speak about yoga and healing mantras as a path to self-realization, and the real work of yoga beyond just the poses on the mat, at the Feb.19 meeting of the Emerald Coast Meditation Society. The title will be “Bhakti, the Yoga of Devotion.”

    The free meeting will start with a 30-minute meditation at 6:30 p.m. in the sanctuary of Christ the King Episcopal Church, 480 N. Co. Hwy. 393, Santa Rosa Beach, a half mile north of Hwy. 98. The group, which usually meets in the parish hall, is ecumenical, following no religion.

    “We will learn about the five bodies influenced by yoga, mantra and meditation, and how we can become a whole human being,” says Binkley. “Also, how we can awaken to our true nature to save ourselves and the planet.” She adds that “We will breathe, chant, and meditate together.”

    Binkley is a yoga and spiritual teacher, holistic esthetician and intuitive healer. She has been teaching yoga for over 15 years and was previously an Aveda esthetician for eleven years. She used both to inspire others, creating peace and touching many lives while improving mind, body, spirit and skin for her friends and clients. Her calling is to empower others, through yoga and total body wellness, to follow their dreams and live a life full of passion and purpose. She offers private and public yoga classes, workshops and retreats as well as customized holistic organic skin care.

    Shantaya is a famed German singer who, under the name Jenny Boneja, has been performing on stage since the age of 12 and has served as lead singer in a rock-and-roll band and a rhythm-and-blues band. But she wanted to experience more than that and to answer the spiritual question, “Who am I without that?” She studied yoga for over a decade and then lived at Ammaʼs Amritapuri Ashram in Kerala, India, for a month. In January 2013 she moved to New Orleans where she completed yoga teacher training.

    She now performs and records healing mantra—age-old chants that empower people to heal their own emotional and physical injuries. Last September she traveled through four southeastern states on a Healing Mantra tour.

    The evening will end with a short guided meditation. Anyone who needs meditation instruction should arrive by 6:15 p.m. For information email Nancy James,
