Join us for a weekend of classical yogic wisdom rooted in medical research, presented in a delightfully understandable fashion.

The weekend retreat will include:
- asana practice based on the classical teachings of the Gitananda lineage
- pranayama techniques to utilize our lung capacity for higher states of consciousness
- mudras to change the flow of energy within us to invoke the energies of the universe
- the 12 chakras or vortices of energy that keep us integrated as a human being
- the panchakoshas – the five layers of our being held together by prana
