You’ve come this far, now GO DEEPER!

Hands-On Assists and Alignment suggestions allow the body to come into its fullest opening, allowing the pose to be experienced not by the body or the brain, but by an innate sense of spaciousness where awareness resides.

Designed for practitioners who have already completed a Yoga Teacher-Training program and seasoned students who are looking to continue their personal studies in yoga.

Participants will receive a certificate on completion.

Monthly KIRTAN & Sacred Sanga with Dayal Gauranga and Friends

**This is a monthly event. Please see below for dates.**

Sanga is a time to come together as a community and connect through deep spiritual principles. We sing in kirtan with a common purpose of uplifting our consciousness via sacred sound and we share wisdom and stories from the yoga tradition that inspire us and give insight how to navigate the challenges and circumstances that inevitably come in life. It doesn’t matter your background or level of experience. All that is required is an open heart and enthusiasm to connect to something beyond the material.

Dayal Gauranga has been on a spiritual journey leading kirtans and sacred sangas for more than 20 years. At 18 years old, he became a monk and dedicated himself to a life of inner study, reflection, and service.  One year later he made his first trip to India and has since traveled back numerous times throughout the subcontinent, as well as to countries and communities around the world to learn, discover and share. After 10 years of monastic life, he transitioned out of the monastery, met his wife, got married, and currently lives in Brooklyn with their dog Jiva. He, along with a group of talented friends and yogis, seek to share the gifts they’ve received as a means to spread inspiration and joy around the world.
