The Power of Spirit & The Energy of These Times with Kartar Khalsa

Powerful Kundalini Workshop featuring Kartar Khalsa

East Meets West Yoga sits exactly 13.7 miles from the Lincoln Memorial, the vortex for the angelic energy that nourishes and guides these United States. This is the country that in 1776 vanquished monarchy and indentured servitude. It is the country that 100 years later, in 1865, drew the line on slavery. This is the one country on the planet made up of all the countries. And now, 150 years later, this country, and people all around the planet, is waking again. This time the piece of planetary consciousness in evolution is different.

Now it is about the sovereignty of every being, the sacredness of all life and the planet, and the sense that we are all One. Let us come together and create an energy that is unstoppable, invincibly powerful, and send its pulse to the very vastness of the Universe, an unmistakable claim to the sacredness of all life.

We will start with a powerful kriya to release stress and the fragmentation that happens from going outside rather than inside. And it will have a unique opportunity to connect—to create a Oneness with all, with everyone. Please come and lend your energy. Bring friends!

This is no need to have done any yoga before.

Friday, June 9
6:30 – 8:30 pm
$20.00 preregistered; $30.00 at the door

Gentle & Chair Yoga for the Technology Age with Sherry Zak Morris

Computers, cell phones and tablets open up our world to new ideas, fun, education, business and community. However, the dark side of technology is the posture-breaking, static-holding and repetitive motions that can wreak havoc in our physical structures. No age is immune to these side effects of computer use. As Yoga Teachers, we undoubtedly will have students in our classes that are suffering from physical issues directly tied to their computer use. Learning effective Gentle and Chair Yoga poses and sequences to bring relief to the computer worker is a must for Yoga Teachers who teach group classes.

Yoga Teachers and Tech Workers Welcome! Come Learn! REGISTER UNDER WORKSHOPS
