Meditation lies at the core of yoga  and supports us to create a meaningful life. Seen as our natural birthright, meditation reduces suffering  and is a significant means to inner freedom and well-being. All our hatha yoga classes and programs include this transformative practice.

This 75 minute class is a beautiful way for new students to enter the practice of meditation and also provides energy and insight for our experienced meditators. The class includes teachings, the use of mantras and chants, a deep meditation and time to process and integrate our experiences. All students are welcome. There is guided instruction and exploration of how to apply the teachings to our current life situation.

Price: $18 for the class, $10 if you take the 6:15-7:45pm Open Level Class with Rudrani beforehand.

I take these long amazing bike rides home after Monday night Hatha class followed by Meditation class. I ride after my body and mind have been stretched, exercised, super educated, soothed and then gently quieted. Quieted for longer and completely different stretches of time than I would have ever imagined possible, and then woken with a sort of gentle shudder that says: THERE IS AWESOMENESS! My ride away is like flying in the dark. The colored lights blurring by me in the night air. Everything seems extra sparkly. It's part of the amazing experience that I get if I’m lucky on a Monday night.

Theme: 'Standing In True Self in a time of Change'

These are extraordinary times. We are navigating a period of great awakening and great change and can feel the keen pulls on this evolutionary journey. We are in uncharted waters within ourselves and in the collective. The beacon of light that is our very own Self has been calling to us ever more strongly from the luminous field of our radiant core, inviting us to expand, to be permeated with energy, to chase away shadows and spread unity awareness. It has been deepened by Covid which has given us resilience, knowledge of true priorities and greater self awareness. 

And in the midst of this inner pull, is the crisis in the moral fiber of our country. Our intrinsic Humanity is being tested as a people of conscience. Unheard pain has come powerfully into the spotlight along with various dark rivers of uncorrected collective thinking. We are pulled into participation and to reflect on unfamiliar feelings associated with shifts in our own viewpoints. As we stretch along with events, knowing this is a the time to build a new world on higher ground, lets explore how to listen deeply, learn and navigate these times with compassion and focus. Lets explore together as we co- create a shared energetic field of deep pull into knowledge of the Self.

Satsang is the practice of meeting for the sake of truth, to explore the teachings and bring forth our own highest wisdom. Friends and family are welcome.   

The group chose this theme in our last Satsang. Come join us and enjoy our shared learning as we all continue to grow together. Satsang is an evening of high energy with Rudrani, the WYC Director. This monthly program includes group meditation, chanting, yoga philosophy, spiritual teachings and an exploration of the theme of the month. All are welcome. No prior experience needed.

The meditation was very powerful for me… I felt such strong light moving up through my whole body for almost the whole 25 minutes! And a very beautiful sense of connection with everyone in the room.  

I found the Satsang deeply inspirational and moving, and told the friend who brought me afterwards that I want to attend as regularly as I can. 

Thank you for hosting another wonderful evening. So rich – and FULL. It feels as if I am coming home. I always leave overflowing…

Satsang is wonderful – deep and strong. Meditating in that space, nestled on the corner of the 26th floor, overlooking our beloved City, is always so profound and deep. Certainly the long history of transformation energy in that very place makes it easier for all of us to glide with abandon into a meditation that feels like being held. I was struck by how that word comes up more than once during sharing. It is what keeps me coming back…. (WYC student)
