Sankalpa is a yogic practice of heartfelt intention setting. Take time to slow down and approach this practice mindfully amidst the hustle and bustle of the season.

By looking inward you can let go of what no longer serves you, honor the callings of your heart and make space for what is to come in the new year.

Through yin yoga, small movements will graduate to larger movements to help you explore the range of motion and range of possibilities within your body and energy. Class will conclude with meditation and a writing practice to help you reinforce your intention.
