Finding Peace in the Pandemic - Yoga and Dharma Talk with Gabriel Halpern.

Is it possible to find calm in the coming months of change and transition? Yoga says yes. Join Gabriel Halpern for this YogaCare fundraiser event on Thursday, June 17th from 7 pm - 9 pm.

Gabriel is back! He will weave together an inspiring Dharma talk along with an engaging asana practice to help cultivate peace in the pandemic.

Through study, service and surrender, the three main paths of Jnana, Karma, and Bhakti Yoga give guidelines on how to choose what to dedicate your time and attention to. Learn to create peace within yourself in order to foster more harmony, composure and equanimity... and radiate it outwards to everyone around you.

Props, such as a mat and a chair will be needed. Blocks, belts, a wall space, bolster, blankets/pillow will also be helpful but not necessary.

Suggested donation is $25 or the appropriate amount you are able to share.

Gabriel Halpern is a treasured pioneer in the Yoga community. He trained at the Iyengar Yoga Institutes in San Francisco and Pune, India with B.K.S. Iyengar and the Iyengar family. A practitioner since 1970, he founded a studio, The Yoga Circle in 1985. For over 20 years, he was a faculty member at De Paul University. He has been awarded the Elder/Mentor of the Year by the Mankind Project. Named by Yoga Journal as one of "10 Influential Teachers Who Have Shaped Yoga in America," Gabriel continues to share his rich teachings with students and teachers alike, spreading the joy of Yoga.
