BALANCING THE ELEMENTS… “Our four days of yoga practice together will be a combination of movement and stillness to gently strengthen and slowly open the physical and subtle bodies. Combining the solar, yang, projective components of the kundalini practice and the lunar, yin, receptive elements of the restorative practices, we will tonify and balance. Let’s quiet the mind, balance the body and ease the heart, so we can perceive with full awareness the love and peace of our essential nature.”
