Description

JOIN US for an evening urban retreat from the noise of midtown Manhattan, as we "RAISE OUR CONSCIOUSNESS" together!

This Christmas special edition will be co-hosted by Nana Shirai and Darren Marc. Nana is a life-long devotee of yoga and healing, and owner-founder of The Deva Studio of healing arts in Mamaroneck, Westchester, NY. She studied Iyengar yoga in Seattle, and is currently training at Kundalini Yoga East NYC. Nana is a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2002 and she offers healing that is a combination of massage, movement, breathing, right food choices and aura cleansing. Darren Marc is a sacred music artist who has been considered for a Grammy, and is a reiki master, spiritual teacher and writer.


CANDLELIT YOGA URBAN RETREAT

This is part of our monthly urban retreat series, hosted every 3rd Thursday of each month, with some special editions every now and again! Follow the Spice Yoga Facebook page for event announcements (on the rare occasion should there be unforeseen changes/ cancellations).

Surrounded by candles, start the evening uplifted with live soul-stirring kirtan music. Then awaken the mind-body with a 60-minute Slow Deep Flow yoga practice that develops strength and flexibility, cultivates mindfulness and deep inward reflection. Total time: 90 minutes.

Non-denominational and open to all who seek sanctuary from the urban cacophony and to reconnect with deep inner presence. We will hold space as a community to pause and move mindfully in the beautiful vaulted spaces of St Bartholomew's Church in Midtown Manhattan. We have also been hosting charity fundraisers and other special events, e.g. soundbowl healing. CHECK THIS EVENTBRITE PAGE TO SIGN UP IN ADVANCE FOR ALL EVENTS.
