The Winter Solstice is a pivotal time of the calendar year, marked with reverence by many ancient cultures including Stonehenge in the U.K and by the Anasazi people of the Southwest, at Chaco Canyon. Join us as we peer through the aperture of time to bear witness to the light on this shortest day of the year. The outer light on this day sparks open a truly magical connection to the light within. Through asana, meditation, poetry, song and verse we invoke a vast all-penetrating light. In yoga, the aperture at the top of the vertebral column is the portal that opens to the light body know as chitrini or sushumna. As the winter season sets in, and the light in the sky wanes, we practice pranayama and meditation to unveil the band of light in the central spine.
