One way to experience this connection is through the spiritual practice of yoga, which is often translated as “unification of the self with the Divine.” All are encouraged to explore the basics of yoga, as we introduce postures and principles for healthy body and soul. Interested beginners are especially welcome – we provide mats and blocks.
