Join Uma Kleppinger and Kendall Hassemer as we celebrate the confluence of teachers, traditions, and practices coming together in the spirit of tapas—the alchemistry of transformation through yoga. Following a brief guided meditation to set our intentions for the weekend, we will move through a dynamic, invigorating vinyasa practice to dissolve the barriers that stand in the way of all the goodness we wish to achieve—and receive—in our lives. The class will be accompanied by a lively soundtrack, then ease into a quiet, contemplative closing sequence of yin yoga, infused with the timeless teachings of Rumi, Hafiz, Lao Tzu and other Eastern sages and wisdom teachers. The practice will conclude with a candle lighting ceremony to ignite the darkness and carry us into the weekend of light, laughter and the love of yoga!
