This warm invitation is open for everyone traveling alone or with friends, new to yoga or practicing for decades. This is the time you get to devote yourself to think only of yourself and your wellbeing, to connect within, breathe consciously, relaxing and allowing endless inspiration to flood in.
Your transformational journey will begin with a wonderful graceful yoga flow. Practicing yoga from a place of grace aligns body, mind and soul with the world and the universal intelligence. When you flow with grace, you flow with presence, compassion, kindness and gratitude, not just on the mat but into the world. On the mat we are aware of our body’s strength and limitations. We know how to coax our muscles into strength, flexibility and balance and how to flow with effortless ease and grace. We are aware of the forces of nature like gravity. In the world we are more aware of our interconnectedness with others, nature and universe.
Grace & gratitude meditation will then lead us to an experience of awe, unconditional love and gratitude, it is the harmonious integration of our body, mind and soul with the source of all creation. This will help us to come back home to our true selves, to a place of compassion, forgiveness, inspiration, creativity, light and joy.

We will learn and chant together three shakti mantras: Saraswati mantra (the power of knowledge and speech); Laksmi mantra (the power of abundance); Durga mantra (the power of protection).
