Hidden Language with Swami Sukhananda

The Hidden Language of Hatha Yoga takes your asana practice to a different level, beyond a series of physical exercises to quieten the mind. In this gentle and meditative approach, by reflecting with symbolism and visualization, the ‘hidden’ messages of each asana are subtly revealed.

Date: Saturday, January 21, 2017


Conscious Living in Times of Change with Swami Sukhananda

We live in a world of fast-paced, continual change – processing endless input and meeting demands for flexibility and quick decisions. As life speeds up, we can lose perspective and a deep sense of meaning. Yogic practices are designed to bring us back to our ‘grounding,’ to stillness and to connection to purpose. Join us for a breath, relaxation, visualization and reflection – a time of returning to centre.
