- akhanda yoga® master class: roots of our true nature
June 12 5-7 pm $45
Join us for an uplifting yoga practice with master teacher Yogi Vishvketu Phd, founder of Akhanda Yoga®. Through asana, pranayama, meditation and mantra we will explore ways to keep ourselves aligned with our true nature everyday. This time spent in dedication to our deeper selves cultivates fertile conditions for our true potential to blossom.
How does our karma work to inform our choices in daily life? We are all born into the world with karmic coding, from our family, our background, and our culture that informs how we make choices in our lives. By choosing to act in alignment with our true nature, we plant healthy karmic seeds that will grow and flourish.
Yogi Vishvketu is the founder of Akhanda Yoga and author of Yogasana: Encyclopedia of Yoga Posures, as well as being the beloved teacher of teachers at Prana Yoga Studio! He brings the roots of ancient yoga alive in the west with workshops, trainings and retreats that are enlivening, joyful, subtle, playful and deep.

- healing breath therapy
Sunday, June 12
$35 + gst
For breath is life, and if you breathe well you will live long on earth. ~Sanskrit Proverb
Healing Breath Therapy is a healing system based on the natural intelligence of the body. This therapy utilizes the power of the breath to heal and balance the mind and body combining techniques of yogic breathing and shamanic breathing. Breath is the most powerful source of life force energy (prana) which can heal the body, open blockages, reveal patterns or addictions, assist in the releasing of past trauma or abuse and accelerate spiritual growth.
“This powerful therapy is safely and expertly guided, each session offers a new experience in healing, self exploration and growth.” D.N.
