Join us this November at Mt. Madonna in the Santa Cruz mountains of California. Return to heart, bask in the love of your Anusara kula, and study with renowned fellow teachers on the Anusara path. "Recognition of the sacred in the heart of all beings" is the first of ASHY’s newly stated core values, and this year's theme for Samavesha. It speaks to the universality of supreme consciousness and each individual's ability to crystalize this truth. Come to Samavesha to remember, renew, and reconnect to the light of your own heart.
In addition to a philosophy intensive with Bill Mahony, Ph. D., workshops with renowned meditation teacher Sally Kempton and Friday night kirtan with Benjy and Heather Wertheimer of Shantala, the festival lineup includes a wide variety of yoga classes and teacher training workshops. Samavesha 2016 faculty includes BJ Galvan, Gaby Zermeño, Jayendra Hanley, Karen Sprute-Francovich, Gail Corvette, Denise Stottman, Siri Peterson Cavanna, LIsa Long, Carmel Calcagno, Leslie Salmon, Yael BenReuven, Jimmy Bernaert, Dolores Kent, Tasha Judson, Julia Pearring, and TIffany Wood.
