    Journey to Breath
    with Pandit Dabral
    Pandit Dabral  
    Breath is the vehicle for prana, the life force, and is that which links the body and mind together. Correct breathing forms the foundation for Yoga Meditation and through it one can gain complete control over the central nervous system. Breath has the power to bring healing and to connect you to your highest Self. 

    With the simple breathing exercises handed down from the sages of yoga, awareness is awakened within. Needless sufferings can be eliminated and future suffering can be avoided. Join Pandit Dabral for this journey into breath..

     Yoga for Pregnancy

    with Kirsten Wallace


    "The ancient self help system of yoga promotes mental and physical well- being and balance, which is vital during times of transition or uncertainty. Your experience of being pregnant and giving birth will involve great physical and emotional changes and knowing how to use and adapt yoga techniques to breathe, move and relax during this time will help you to lay deep foundations for decades of mothering."

    Yoga of Kirtan a musical evening with Shaktideva~ 


    "Kirtan is for all people. There are no experts, no beginners. The practice itself is the teacher, guiding us to ourselves. Kirtan allows us to enter into a mystery world-a world where all the logic of our minds, and all of the conditioning are left aside. With Kirtan, we create a temple inside the altar of our hearts, a place of refuge, a place of love, and a place of just being." -Jai Uttal"
