These yoga classes are designed for all levels, incorporating breathing, stretching, and fluid movements, guided by live chanting in the beginning and end of practice..  The postures and techniques help to stabilize and calm the nervous system, strengthen muscles, and tone the organs, bringing more ease and circulation throughout the body. You can expect to feel more relaxed, aware, harmonized, and energized from this yoga practice.


Learn classical mantras from the Tibetan Buddhist lineage that help to harmonize the mind, body, and speech. You will experience the calming effects that mantra repetition has on your thoughts.


Experience a musical devotional gathering as traditionally practiced in India and now throughout the world.  Kirtan includes repetitions of call & response singing of a sacred mantra. Gloria will lead songs with her voice and harmonium.
