About the event

We invite you to join us as we celebrate Winter Solstice, a time of deep reflection and inner work to prepare for the coming light. Clear your mind, renew your nervous system, and find that place of stillness within, where you're able to connect to your highest internal guidance.

Enjoy an evening of breathing (pranayma), movement (kriya), mantra and meditation, as well as the beauty and deep relaxation of a gong sound immersion with our special guest, Wayne Marto of Beneficial Sound. LeAnn (Siri Kirti) will also share a little about the astrological weather—where we've been and where we're headed as we approach 2023. As we move from the stability of earth to the fluidity of air, it’s even more important that we learn how to navigate effectively, remaining flexible while cultivating connection and community.

Everyone is welcome--regardless of yoga experience or physical capabilities--to experience an evening that supports you wherever you're at on your path.

  • Siri Kirti (LeAnn Plank): What are we here to learn? As we transition to a new age, the practice of yoga centers and grounds us, helping us develop our own sense of internal guidance. Astrologer, Kundalini Yoga teacher, and musician, LeAnn, Siri Kirti, blends her love of astrology, yoga, and sound healing to help bring greater awareness, meaning, and understanding of our evolutionary journey, both personally and collectively.
