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.

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: The Ultimate Force of Love
This Satsang will be a Benefit Satsang for Ukraine. All Satsang proceeds, as well as our donations made during Satsang break time, will go to those tax-deductible organizations most dedicated to alleviating the burdens of this emergency. Thank you for your participation in what will be a beautiful community gathering.
In a world where we face dissolution through loss of natural habitat, through warfare, through illness, through destabilization of the social fabric, there remains a refuge within us of incredible potency that’s ultimate, that’s full of Bliss, and that cannot be destroyed.
There is nothing, no matter how fearsome, that is greater than what the great Sages called Supreme Love. Death cannot touch this place. The mystery of this is worth understanding, not with the limited mind but with the innermost heart.
Let’s explore how the wisdom teachings describe this and what is perceivable within our own innermost being and how we can serve.
Satsang is a co-creation. Let’s contemplate Supreme Love and explore this together.
Beginners to meditation are welcome, friends and family are welcome.

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)
