“In Yogic Tradition, breath is so honored that life is not granted in days and years but by a given number of breaths” – Guru Terath Kaur Khalsa. The practice of regulating our breath lies at the heart of yoga. It is the bridge between the body, mind, and spirit. In this workshop, learn simple and accessible ways to work with your breath, explore the different effects of various breathing techniques, and learn to apply these techniques to everyday life. Once we harness the power of the breath, we can find a deeper experience both on and off the mat! No experience necessary, open to all levels.

Of course, the hose-draggers and their supporters will be wearing the identical shirts in red, so your presence there would help us extinguish their hopes of a victory and prove once and for all that the shield is mightier than the smooth bore nozzle. We would also like to take a moment to thank our friends from Punta Gorda Fire for taking time from their rigorous schedule of washing trucks, picking up take-out from China Wok, and foregoing the latest episode of Ellen to team with us to support the great work[...]
