Our intention with this gathering is to inspire participants to find what lights them up and to share that more effectively with the world. We will be exploring Mind, Body and Spirit during these 4-days together including time in nature, lunch and dinner conversation, and workshops with global thought leaders. The base will be two heart-opening yoga classes per day as well as thoughtful, curated conversations and workshops.

This transformational event supports Aspen City of Wellbeing, a non-profit organization dedicated to shifting culture towards an optimal state of wellbeing for all.

Lead With Love, October 26th-29th 2017.

Using ashtanga yoga style practice, the Urban Yogis will teach about half of the primary series.

Leading with love, we will close our class out with a kindness/love meditation and then transition into a deep relaxation.
