You can expect to feel more relaxed, aware, harmonized, and energized from this yoga practice.

GODDESS MEDITATION

Learn through sacred art about Buddhist feminine deities and their mantras for meditation.  This session will offer practices of visualization and sound vibration to call on the qualities of the sacred feminine.

CREATIVE EXPRESSION

Explore spontaneity and play through expressive arts! Get creative with how you move in your voice, body, mind, and emotions.
