Sacred Evolution: Yoga and Meditation

Nov 11 - 16, 2018 Begins in 2 weeks
with Charu Rachlis

We are living in one of the most accelerated times of change in history. The challenge each of us faces is how to navigate these changes with wisdom, creativity, and joy. Yoga as an ancient art and science oriented toward reducing suffering is the path that will guide us in our time together. We will weave together asanas (postures), meditation, pranayama (conscious breath), and restorative poses. In times like now, there are huge opportunities for growth, which we can see as evolutionary gifts.
