Nature meets nurture: DURGA live


Wind down the hot busy days of Summer with a calming 3 days at the beautiful Nectar Yoga on Bowen Island.
We will take time to understand how we are guided by Nature and how it Nurtures us. Durga will be invoked. Learning her nine arms and powers and how she is the guiding force of nature.
This will be through practice, Nature Bathing Walks that allow for non-doing. Philosophy talks, and connecting to the roots of Yoga that lead us back to the nature we arrived from.
