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: 'Healing the Shadows of the Heart'
As this historic perios unfolds, we have discovered many things by direct experience during this time, including the incredible power there is in practicing together even though we are scattered all over the world. What then is holding us together energetically? How is it that we feel we are falling apart at times and at other times feel larger than we have ever felt in presence, understanding and heart? Something so powerful is supporting us and it brings with it a deeper knowing of our own shadows, a deeper yearning for unbroken connection with others and an increased search for our own innermost being. Lets explore how we can direct the energies opening inside us, some familiar and some surprisingly unfamiliar, and use this time well. We are being invited to realize its value as an opportunity for intense spiritual practice and transformation. Lets explore this together. Bring your dear ones and your friends and family — All are welcome
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)
