Join us for this deeply rejuvenating practice accompanied by live harp, bamboo flute, and sacred Indian singing. Flow into a blissful state of heightened awareness in the space between sleep and wakefulness.
The class opens with a Yoga asana practice led by Brent Kuecker to prepare and focus the body and prepare the mind for deep relaxation.
