Summer Solstice: Yoga, Ritual, Meditation

With Mara Branscombe

June 14 - 19, 2019

Since ancient times, summer solstice has been celebrated as a sacred turning point in the year to honour the earth’s most dynamic time of expansion, growth and abundance. As we attune to the earth’s rhythm, we, too, have the opportunity to embody a parallel path of healing, connection and radiance.

Join an unforgettable journey of yoga, meditation, movement and shamanism towards a luminous integration of heart, body and mind. Cultivate a deeper connection to the realm of spirit and connect with a like-minded community to celebrate the gifts we can share with the world.

During our time together, experience guided meditation, vinyasa yoga, restorative yoga, movement practices to increase inner radiance, guided pranayama (breath work), outdoor shamanic practices, guided journal sessions, chanting, and spirit circle: sharing, visioning and fire ceremony.

The art of breath, the healing of yoga, the transformative powers of shamanic practices and the mindful awareness of meditation infuse together for a four day celebration of summer solstice.

This program is for anyone who wishes to connect with their highest self, regardless of age or experience.

“Mara’s understanding of the yoga practice and calming presence allows her to connect with every student and support them on their yoga journey, whether it is a class of 1 or 1,000.” – Lindsay C.
