Santosha – A Restorative/Nidra Odyssey
Access the purest state of peace, not by adding anything, but by letting go.
Join Kristine Whittle and Jeremy Wolf for a deeply restful journey to the source of peace through the integration of restorative yoga and yoga nidra. Sink into a nurturing space where all tensions unravel leaving nothing but the ground of Being. A place forever untouched by the turbulence of change, and a state that is ever-reachable within. Recognize that true contentment is not clinging to an ideal circumstance, but instead is the absence of all conflict.

Learn to Meditate with James Gardner
While we may not often recognize them, between each thought is a gap, albeit a small one for most of us living in this fast-paced world. Learning to lengthen these gaps through meditation helps us to better control our next thought and the emotions that often accompany them, thus creating inner peace, greater vitality, less stress and better health.
With over 10 years of study with Deepak Chopra, James teaches students using the timeless practice of Primordial Sound Meditation. Meditation is a tool for rediscovering the body’s own inner intelligence. Primordial Sound Meditation uses individually selected sounds of nature called mantras, to disconnect us from the activity of life. These primordial sounds are based on the vibration the universe was creating at the moment of your birth, giving each of us a personal mantra by which to quiet the mind, lengthen the gaps between thoughts and connect with our deeper self. After registering , please email your birthdate, time and location to: firstname.lastname@example.org for your personal mantra.

2013 Fall Ayurvedic Cleanse
Our Spring and Fall Ayurvedic Cleanses are among Vital Yoga’s most popular and immediately beneficial educational offerings. Ayurveda is India’s ancient, intelligent system of health and healing via the body and mind using nutritious food as the principal tool for transformation. Although it seems revolutionary in our country, Ayurveda has been practiced throughout the world for thousands of years—and still has a great deal of relevant wisdom to offer us.
We invite you to remember the sustainable teachings of Ayurveda with us twice a year, each fall and spring, in order to make shifts around the way we view food, eating, and our bodies. By cleansing at the change of the seasons, we instill grounding practices to transition with the local food and weather gradually. We look forward to addressing specific concerns and helping you to recover your vitality—as well as assisting you in making sustainable choices around food, health and the health of the planet.
