CHOICE OF YOGA 0R MEDITATION

Following a morning of inspiration, the afternoon will offer a choice to practice either 108-minutes of energetic and healing yoga with renowned yoga instructors or a 108-minute Meditation Workshop. In Eastern traditions, the number 108 is sacred and signifies the interconnection between body, mind and spirit. The number 1= unity, 0 = stillness and 8 = infinite possibility. We will breathe through our yoga postures or meditation practice in unity as we discover the stillness to absorb the teachings of the day and then step off the mat into our daily lives and the limitless possibilities of a healthier lifestyle.
