Stretch, Relax, and Meditate (Gentle/All Levels)

One of the greatest gifts of living at the Himalayan Institute is the opportunity to take yoga classes from senior faculty in residence. Now, you have the chance to experience one of our most treasured traditions—Mary Gail Sovik’s “Stretch, Relax, and Meditate” class—from your own home! You’ll prepare the body for meditation with gentle movements and a long relaxation, then sit comfortably for a guided inward journey.
