He will share these deeply potent Lunar practices to help unwind stress & tension, and release the pressure and anxiety that commonly come with fast paced modern day life. It is well know that stress and tension play a major role in disease manifestation.

These Yin style practices are a powerful medicine to help us slow down and let go into a profound state of cosmic of relaxation, insight and stillness. While softening into the asanas, GOVIND DAS will guide participants through the doorway of the heart, where the divine spark lives within.
