7 – 9pm

Merging with the Elements: A Vinayasa Flow w/ Cacao + Sacred Drumming for ALL

Explore the fusion of the ancient internal practices of Yoga and Shamanism. Yoga (union with the Divine) and Shamanism (interaction with the spirit world) both are practices traditionally designed to lead us to the direct flow of wisdom. We begin the class with a cup of Sacred Cacao to connect us to Spirit and to help expand our Heart Chakra (30 min). We then use the ancient teachings of Nature’s Five Elements for this intense and transformational yoga practice led by Amy Heilman (90 min). Our experience will be deepened by the constant thread of Sacred Drumming performed live. Email to save your spot!
