Yoga for the Kalachakra participants at Menla Mountain Michele will offer an option to support our practice of the Kalachakra this year with daily yoga classes as our schedules allow. We will do a 60-90 minute session accessible to all levels with focus on supporting the sitting practice with hip opening and core stabilization. Yoga asana practice will also help us to clear and open our subtle bodies for deeper access to the energy we are working with in the Kalachakra mandala. Please feel free to email Michele with any questions or to let her know about former injuries or modifications you might be working with in your practice. firstname.lastname@example.orgSource: menla.secure.retreat.guru
