On Saturday, July 20th beginning at 6:00 a.m. thirty students will begin the inward journey to discover the Light that resides within all of us. Incorporating many of the different aspects of yoga; Bhakti, Hatha, Jnana, Tantra, Mantra & Raja, those attending the event will receive the full spectrum of what an authentic yoga practice can be.

Guru Purnima is a celebration of the Light the Guru offers. It is typically practiced on the full moon to celebrate Vyasa the author of the ancient text the Mahabharata, or the Buddha. Santosha will be incorporating the ancient ceremony of Puja with modern day yoga in order to create a day of gratitude and grace for each individual. Guru is derived from two words; Gu meaning “darkness” or “ignorance” and Ru meaning “light”, therefore, the Guru is the one who shines the light where there was once darkness or ignorance. When celebrating this energy the practitioner is automatically aligning their energy with the Guru’s energy. This creates an opportunity for profound healing on the physical, mental and emotional levels.
