WYC Additional Offerings

Dear Ones,

The WYC remains an oasis of peace and stillness —just as it always has been—  As this oasis moved beyond its walls and into all of our homes, we were tracking something powerful and present within ourselves deepen and grow. Keeping ourselves strong and grounded in practices, we are learning as a community that the essential love that connects us and extends into the larger community, is beyond time and space… it knows no distance. Our practices and teachings have always helped stabilize us in our connection to true self. It seems that now, in this challenging and reflective time, there is a deeper possibility, not only within ourselves but for all people everywhere, to uplift the inner climate of the human family.

We are extending our sense of sheltering together out to the extended community, as our community lives all over our country. We have built a shared sacred space of practice, brick by brick, by each of us creating a special space for our practices in our own homes, imbued with shared intention and interconnection. 

In addition to our usual classes and other programs, we offer: 
WYC daily Morning Meditation Classes
WYC Reiki offerings


WYC daily Morning Meditation Classes

(Morning meditations are complimentary)

We continue to stay committed to holding and strengthening our community’s togetherness with meditation and pranayama, offering a daily online class of breathing and meditation practices guided by our beautiful WYC teachers. 

The class is offered with love at no cost. 

To attend, log in to or sign up for your account, you can book the morning meditation classes up to 10 days in advance. You will receive an email with the zoom link before meditation starts (a text message as well if you opt in to receive SMS communications).


Preparation needed for the guided journey inward is simple: a comfortable seat– chair or floor,  some props for an effortless upright posture, and a quiet protected serene place in your home away from distractions.

It is a special time of sanctuary — in which we gently create a haven, a sanctuary for ourselves in our own homes, a place of peace and presence.

Daily morning meditation is for our community and friends, family and anyone you wish to bring to it knowing there will be sufficient instruction for newcomers to follow and meditate ease-fully.

Do join us! 

A select number of the mornings with WYC Director, Rudrani, are available via recordsings to enjoy anytime. Click here for meditation recordings
