Winter Solstice Class & Community Potluck Celebration

Join Rebekka Walker for a mixed level, candlelit class followed by a celebratory community potluck. 

A class to celebrate the contrast of light and dark, and unite with nature's rhythms. In yoga, and in astrology, the sun symbolizes the soul. The word “solstice,” in Latin, means sun standing still, so in a sense, we could say the soul stands still on the solstice—maybe even long enough for you to catch a glimpse of it, as some legends say you can at this divine time of year. 

The longest night (meaning it contains the most hours of darkness) is a deeply-trusted nocturnal delight, a sort of spiritual pillow where we rest our head and nestle under soft layers of a velvety void. The darkest night contains the most magnetic power, too; this is a time to draw forth what you want, to incubate your best intentions. As you’re cuddling in the cradle of a lingering midnight, nurture high hopes for your best new year ever.

When: December 20th

Winter Solstice Class: 5:30-7:00pm

Celebration Potluck: 7:15pm-8:30pm
