Join us for a Summer Solstice Seasonal Gong Celebration to renew your inner light through the deep relaxing sound of Sacred Gongs.

Ayurveda is a science of balance. One of the primary places we seek balance is between our internal environment and the external environment.

Join Āyurvedic Practitioner and ParaYoga instructor, Kara Aubin for this Summer Wellness workshop. We’ll explore what elements and qualities are in excess this season and what we can do on the mat and off to create the ideal balance for your constitution. Radical wellness starts here! Improve your digestion, elimination, sleep, energy, and mood with this science of self-healing.

Workshop Schedule:

8:30 - 10:30am Ayurveda for Summer Wellness
