In the personal journey of maturity, where we pass through phases of life and development, there are many dead ends — places we arrive with good intentions, only to discover disappointment or disillusionment. Yoga can be like that, and without an experienced guide, the opportunities at these types of crossroads can be missed for what they truly are: reminders to return to the essence of yourself and what is real.
Experience this New Year’s with the simple intention of having fun through movement and self-discovery, enjoying yourself and the company of like-minded people, in the breath-giving environment of Esalen. Recognize (again) that inner connection is an awesome gift to give yourself and those in your life for the coming year. The program will include gravity-supported movement and meditation, suitable for those with any level of yoga experience, from beginner to intermediate. Instruction will be given with light-handed guidance from a senior teacher, accompanied by the mystical live music of Masood Ali Khan, Sheela Bringi, and Johnee Gange. Please bring a yoga mat.
