Finding Calm in the Midst of Chaos – Meditation for Everybody

Lesson Description

During this incredibly challenging time, we need our yoga practices more than ever - to combat anxiety and fear, to self-regulate, and to stay healthy and maintain equipoise. Build resilience, mindfulness, and compassion with meditation. Join us, connect, and take refuge with the Sanga (the community), as we learn to watch our thoughts and cultivate present moment awareness.
