This class marries Yoga and Shamanic principles. We will explore how yoga asana can lead us to the medicine and wisdom of our power animals/totems and other Shamanic healing concepts. The exploration with include gentle flow (vinyasa), restorative, and yin yoga. Through this practice the student will attune themselves to animal and Earth medicine. Each class will also feel like a meditative journey experience. Come and be balanced, aligned and healed by yourself, Creator and Earth.
