Thanksgiving is a time of grateful expression. It is also signifies the beginning of a holiday period that can be stressful and challenging. Come honor yourself and lighten the load by ritualistically removing obstacles to peace through the body and sacred sound in a deeply intentional yoga asana series designed by master yogi Sri Baba Hari Dass. Amita, a student of Babaji’s, will lead you in this soulful, richly personal, devotional salutation of forgiveness. In the safe space of community, we will offer a tight tapestry of specific sacred sound formulas or mantras linked to flowing yoga poses. Surrendering fear, anger, frustration, greed, lust, and more, we will burn away qualities that keep us at bay from our true Self and real peace.
