MEDITATION WITH MANTRAS / Deep Yoga Studio 9-10am. Sharpen the mind to integrate focus and concentration. We will raise our vibration in our physical body through the chantings.

Through the vibrations the circle in it self gets higher and higher by breathing consciously, getting in to a powerful trance moving our energy from the inside out. Further information.
