Embrace your light during this years Winter Solstice with Chris Yonker and Willow Beseda.

This day of the year when the time of light is shortest is a traditional time to reflect and release what no longer serves us and open to greater possibility with the return of longer days with increased light. We will spend time in yoga and meditation supported by the crystal singing bowls as well as other sound healing modalities to engage in a personal release and renewal ceremony with a warm Sacred Cacao Elixir.

The sound bath will be woven by Willow using sacred sounds from the crystal and tibetan singing bowls, native american flute, celestial chimes, angelic vocal harmonics and soft mantra.

Limited to 40 students / $45 prepaid ticket / $50 at door

* Retreat located in the Shambhala Meditation Room at the St. Louis Wellness Center in Webster Groves, MO

What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is a restorative practice where passive poses on the floor are held for a few minutes to gently enable the connective tissue of the body to be safely stimulated. This helps the muscle tissue have more fluid strength and enhances the flow of the life force through the subtle energy channels. The meditative nature of yin yoga encourages release of tension and stress and connection to inner quietude.
