Our sadhana will flow through a series of creative namaskars, arm balances, back bending asana and inversion. Our Diwali celebration will be lit up with an authentic live performance of Indian mantra and world chants, accompanied by the harp and Indian harmonium. We will share an uplifting kirtan experience to open the heart and purify the mind.
