3 Day Life Transforming Course with Gurumatha Amma August 3-7 at Gaia Wellness Retreat
Divine Mother, Gurumatha Amma is an embodiment of Love. She is a rare, precious gem. A self realized soul who constantly gives unconditionally so we can awaken to our highest self, come to know truth and live our life on purpose. Her grace and presence can be felt as soon as you meet her. Amma is a light, she is a pointer, a guide to your way.
Amma resides in India at The Sridhara Sri Gudda Center of Self Realization, a beautiful Temple and Ashram where students from all around the world visit and stay to deepen their yoga and spiritual practice.
In 2019, Amma will travel to Kenya, Ottawa, Montreal, Dallas and California. She will offer a 3 Day Life Transforming Course which blends ancient teachings from several yogic scriptures from the East but made simple and practical for the West.
Amma will touch on True Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama or Breathing Techniques, Chakras and Spirituality. She shares principals and techniques to make life simple, beautiful and enjoyable. She shares the benefits to why we need a Guru, and a yoga practice in such a busy, modern time. She shares how yoga helps to untangle us and how it unities the body, mind and spirit. Amma teaches that life is meant to explore, that we are meant to be happy and that we should laugh often and love our life.
Come dance, sing, laugh and be moved. Come stretch, learn, un-learn, grow and unfold. Come enjoy nature as you nurture your soul. Come connect in community. Come experience, your life will never be the same.
