Step into the New Year as your most authentic Self. Expand your awareness to perceive the infinite possibilities that surround and reside within us.

Please bring your own yoga mat and arrive slightly earlier to settle in. Tickets are non-refundable but transferable. Our experiences are catered to adults, 16 years and above. Studio will open 10 minutes before class and late comers will be turned away.
In ceremony, we activate our codes of remembrance as we begin to awaken to our true essence and purpose. We begin to remember our connection to the sacred web of life. Ceremony will include ceremonial cacao from Tanzania, movement and a sound journey where the vibration of the gong takes you into a state of deep relaxation as you journey into the portal of your heart to receive what’s in your highest good for 2023.
Somatic Medicine Circle
As we gather in Circle, we journey with the medicine of somatic practices to dive into the deeper layers of our consciousness. Here we connect with our own truth and wisdom. Our bodies hold both the stories of our past and seeds of potential of the future. Through breathwork, movement, stillness, and expressive arts, we travel through time and meet with the different parts of ourselves. When we immerse in these alchemical practices, we strengthen our relationship with ourselves through our bodies to arrive at a state of safety, authenticity, and belonging within. From here, we harness the confidence and courage to create a life of highest alignment and deepest joy.
* IMPORTANT * Things to note:
– Please bring your own yoga mat (we provide a cushion) & an extra cushion for your tailbone if you might need one

– Doors will be locked at 1005am. Late comers will be turned away once we start so as not to disrupt the experience.
