Join us for a spring detox immersion into the transforming depths of your own yoga practice to mind-blowing live music and percussion. 

Esalen's healing hot springs and exquisite farm-to-table cuisine are the perfect setting to unwind, drop in and release pent-up physical, emotional and mental toxins. Our daily practices of hot yoga and meditation are accompanied by the sonic elixir of emmy-nominated Joey Lugassy & Ensemble, featuring Toddius Maximus, Domonic Dean Breaux, Phillipo Franchini, Christo Pellani, and Eddie young. One session will be followed by hot sesame oil Abhyanga self-massage. During this weekend you can cultivate peaks of vitality which will remain with you long after you return to your urban lives.

Fire in the Belly, Honey in the Heart is a heated Liquid Asana Core Detox Vinyasa Yoga practice open to all levels, and designed by Micheline Berry to activate your inner fire as well as to cultivate fearless compassion in the process. The practice integrates transformational core work, bandha work, dancing surya namaskars, flowing standing poses, inversions, backbends, deep release poses, meditation and includes inspirational writings and an occasional poetry throw down by Micheline. Come prepared to sweat, burn, and bloom! Open to all levels of yoga, meditation, and dance experience. Please bring a water bottle and journal to each class.
