Yoga Acharyas (M.Y.) John William Bauld (MahaDeva) & Shonna Brown (Annapurna) teach classical yoga and are musicians who spread the love that they hold in their heart for Bhakti (the yoga of loving devotion). The debut solo album produced in California by acclaimed Grammy-nominated Ben Leinbach mixes sacred Sanskrit mantra with modern adult contemporary music in English, and the single “Nataraja” is featured on Kripalu’s latest Seva CD ‘Sounds of Bhakti – Vol 7’. Their second album is scheduled for release in summer of 2017. John and Shonna are regular presenters at retreat and wellness centres, yoga conferences, and festivals including Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Stockbridge Massachusetts, Bhaktifest California in Joshua Tree, California, the Toronto International Yoga Conference & Show, and Toronto’s Global Yogathon in Dundas Square. Here at home, they are the founders of Anandafest which continues their commitment to promoting unity and oneness among all people.
