Honoring Peace on Earth

April 21-23 2017

IYCD welcomes Debra Ann back to Denver in celebration and honor of Earth Day.  Join her as she seeks to integrate the teachings and practice of yoga within how we interact within the world.  

 

As followers of the yogic path we must ask ourselves: What is the yogic meaning of peace and honoring and how does one move from concept to integrated honest experience? 

 

There is a simplicity and harmony we can achieve through the development of a sharpened clarity of mind and the cultivation of positive qualities.

 

In this weekend intensive, study, contemplate, practice asana, pranayama and sitting meditation.
