December 21st marks the longest night of the year, coupled with a rare astrological phenomena called the Grand Junction. Traditionally a solstice marks a turning point; an opportunity to release what has been, and welcome in what can be. This winter’s solstice is particularly poignant. 2020 has been a year of intense lessons of reckoning, resilience, and the fragility of the human condition. Collectively we have undergone trauma, revolution, and a rare global test of human creativity.
On this powerful, longest night of the year we will gather in sacred sangha (spiritual community). Together we’ll move through an embodied exploration of the yogic Niyama: Ishvara Pranidhana, or Surrender. What does it take to truly release and let go of the year’s events, so you may plant seeds of transformation and light in the coming year ahead.
This will be a special event, consisting of the full complement of yogic practices - including asana, pranayama, meditation, contemplation, and chanting. As always, my classes are size-inclusive, accessible, and appropriate for beginners.
