Celebrate the blossoming and renewal of life via this first ever River Garden Full Moon Yin Yoga & Dance Party.
First, experience a nurturing guided Yin Yoga class to connect with your life force and center in your authentic self.

This event is an inclusive experience and everyone is welcome. It is a safe place to step out of your comfort zone, shake up stuck energy, and shed old beliefs that no longer align with your authentic self anymore. And don’t forget to have a good time in a conscious, good-hearted community! The event will culminate in a full moon inspired Yoga Nidra sequence to settle the prana for a deeply relaxing and renewing good night rest.

Breathwork Meditation
with Helen Buron

Every 4th Friday Evening  7:30-9:30pm (Lower Studio),
Breathwork is an active meditation that uses the breath as a catalyst for releasing, processing, expansion, and transformation. The rhythmic pattern of the pranayama breathing with two inhales and one exhale gives our minds something to focus on so we may sink into our intuitive, feeling and expressive bodies. In this group circle, you will be lying down in a supportive next of other breathers and will be guided into the breath with affirmations and music by Helen Buron-an artist and energy healing practitioner.
Cost: $25 pre-register/$30 at the door. Nobody turned away due to lack of funds.
