Are you ready for a Kundalini Awakening? Embody your Fierce Fire Goddess as we fortify ourselves spiritually and physically for the Winter with deepened work into Kundalini and the chakra system, as well as inclusive ceremonies where you will be invited to share and hold space for your new sisters.

While the leaves (or even snow!) might be falling gently outside, we will be cultivating our inner fires in the gorgeous warm air of the sunlit atrium at Aspects inn and spa. With the guidance of hosts Nidhi Huba, Marcy Clark and Vanessa Dunleavy, we will dive deep into Kundalini yoga, Buti Yoga, Reiki energy work and Chakra clearings, helping you learn life-changing exercises that stoke the metabolism and cultivate inner light and peace.
