YOGA AS EMBODIED PRAYER: OPENING TO JOY

We’ve all had times of happiness, fleeting, ephemeral moments that dissolve like stardust in the light of our daily lives. But when was the last time you felt joy? True joy is the experience of surrendering into the flow of the present moment, of cracking open our hard shells and allowing the Light of Life to enter. True joy is a state of being. Spend the weekend immersed in a Yoga practice that draws you into the interior space of your body and the present moment.
