October 16 - Nov 14 2019, traveling across India

into the heart of yoga

March 1-14 2020,  in Rishikesh, India

In this course, we will find balance between ancient traditional Indian practices and culture, and more Western forms of yoga and prayer. We will dip our fingers into ALL the pots and try a variety of new spiritual practices, finding what resonates for each of us personally and what we can carry with us after the course is over. I hope to be able to help you find new ways of connecting with Source (God, Goddess, The Universe, Shiva, Shakti, Allah… all names of God are One), and finding that connection within your Self, within Others, and all around you!
