In times of challenge, the desire to transform the world often arises within us. As dedicated yoga practitioners, we recognize that our true power lies in our capacity to initiate change within ourselves. Join Laura Tyree and Moira Anderson in a purifying and transformative yoga experience that centers around the gentle yet profound element of water. This practice skillfully blends creative movement, conscious breath, and inner exploration.

The yogic tradition emphasizes the importance of gradually purifying the realms of thought and emotion, referred to as citta prasadanam. Nurturing states of being that elevate the quality of our mental processes is not only essential for our overall well-being but also serves to amplify our creative potential.

Guided by fluid sequences, meaningful mudras, and a spirit of gentle presence, we extend an invitation to explore the invaluable yogic insights that contribute to the cleansing of our consciousness. As you immerse yourself in this practice, you’ll discover methods to infuse these alchemical elements beyond the mat and into the tapestry of your daily life.
