Consider living each day as if it has the crispness and excitement of the new year. Through the experience of subtle contemplative techniques that have their origins in yoga, a different way of being is able to emerge within each of us. These practices CSare designed for all abilities with careful, skillful, individual attention to remove that sense of dullness, overburdened and constriction we so often feel. Experience meditation in its many forms through simple movement, mindful breathing techniques, chant, silence and ritual threaded together to give you the experience of calm and clarity. Renew and reclaim your body, mind and heart daily with short simple practices you can take  home and apply for the rest of the year.
