Event description

Description

JOIN US for an evening urban retreat from the noise of midtown Manhattan!

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.

This special yoga series is hosted by Ling Acott (Facebook: spiceyoga), retreat leader and yoga festival presenter known for her Slow Deep Flow style, featuring musician yogi and sound healer friends, including Darren Marc, a sacred music artist who has been considered for a Grammy, Laura Beth Brown, Sarah Damsky, Julia Abramova, Emmy Giarrusso, and others.

Every 3rd Thursday of the month, 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 back monthly on this page to sign up in advance.

Non-denominational and open to all who seek sanctuary from the urban cacophony and to reconnect with deep inner presence.
