Winter White @ Wild Lotus

Dear Friends of Yoga,

The blanket of winter begins to envelop us along with shimmering lights, glistening snow and the warmth of a fire. Yoga continuously calls us toward the Light through both the practices of movement and stillness. May this Festive Season remind us of our own inherent beauty and Light.

>> The Gift of Yoga

Consider giving the gift of yoga to someone special. We offer gift certificates in any denomination. Our boutique also has an array of gift items including lavender scented eye pillows and the all new WL t-shirt series.

>> Anusara Workshop Begins Tomorrow

>> Holiday Schedule

We will be offering a special class in celebration of the Winter Solstice on Tuesday December 21st. The dance of the sun and earth has inspired celebrations of the human spirit throughout the ages. This class will illuminate the longest night of the year with candles, movement, music and meditation.

Come celebrate the return of the sun with both Lonna and Naomi leading the practice. This Candlelight Class will be by donation. We also ask that you bring a donation for the Food Bank as a contribution to our community.
