Bringing Yoga to Life by Donna Farhi

This is the philosophy of yoga as a path to a deeper awareness of self. Drawing upon her years of teaching with students, Donna guides readers through all the pitfalls and promises of navigating a spiritual practice.

Seeding Intention: Hatha Yoga + Yoga Nidra for Spring Renewal

The transition between seasons is a potent time for deep reflection and transformation. Tantra teaches that our internal experience is a mirror of the ebb & flow of life on a grand scale; that we are a microcosm of the macrocosm. As the flora & fauna move into dormancy during the cold, damp, dark season of Winter, we too tend towards stillness, quiet, and inward reflection. The dawning of Spring is an opportunity for renewal, rebirth, and recommitment to living the life you desire. As we begin to seed the gardens that will nourish our bodies and senses through the coming seasons, we are called also to seed intentions in the fertile soil of our consciousness.


Workshop includes a brief discussion of sankalpa andYoga Nidra, deep Hatha Yoga Asana practice, and Yoga Nidra for seeding your intentions.
