KYLE SOMERSALL

Kyle is a bad-ass (my words), he's also a meditation teacher, brand copywriting consultant and photographer. He often puts the same song on repeat for hours when he wants to get in flow (YES, ME TOO). In college, he started a music magazine and wanted to become a music journalist. The Power of Habit, Subliminal, and It's Easier Than You Think are three books that have changed his life. Pivot is his favorite word, and he wants you to know: he meditates daily. We love this guy, everything he stands for, and all the ways he serves the world.

He enjoys strawberries, playing basketball, discovering music, freestyle rapping, and kickbacks.

MARALIZ CAMPOS



Maraliz is a Paraguayan-American sonic teaching artist. She spent the last 22-years immersed in the powerful impact of sound and music. Offering workshops and weekly classes in New York and on tour, she guides her students through increased self-awareness, yoga therapeutics, meditation, and sound vibrations using her kinesthetic approach to instruction. Mindfulness practices saturate every class she teaches. Her previous work with refugees and abused women/children informs her interactions with each student.

CATRINA ARMENDARIZ



Catrina is a Samoan-Mexican integrative herbalist and meditation teacher, she also doubles as the Founder of Hereness. Her work is informed by a unique blend of Eastern, Western and Shamanic traditions and techniques that have permeated her practice for over 20 years. Sensuality, or our connection to self (and to eachother) through our senses, is a thread that runs through her teachings. Tea Ceremony is a practice she enjoys sharing from the heart.

ROSE

We're serving organic and wildcrafted rose petals brewed in freshly gathered spring water, from upstate New York. 

Roses, an ancient symbol of love and beauty across a multitide of ancient civilizations, have been used for thousands of years in ceremony. They're the perfect symbol of light and dark, of the dramatic tension that threads through the course of our lives and grounds us into our physical experience, especially in romance. 

They are harvested at dawn, when darkness is transforming into light. In Vedic philosophy, this time of day is refered to as Brahma Mahurta, "God's favorite time". In this ambrosial moment, and auspicious window of transformation, we can access, diurnally, the cosmological influences that suport wisdom and awakening.

Get ready to knock your socks off, sit cozily with a steaming bowl of rose petals, be showered in rose water, and sip generously while we silently drop into an intimate meditation that engages sight, sound, movement, taste, feels, all of it.

CAMELLIA SINENSIS

We're serving organic and wildcrafted camellia sinensis leaf brewed in freshly gathered spring water, from upstate New York. We'll choose a living tea based on the weather and the unique constitution of our gathering.

The ancient philosophy behind tea is one of integration: with nature, with the divine; ultimately, the integration we all seek on a very subtle level, which is that of yoga. This tradition is older than that of tonic herbs, which we've shared in previous gatherings, and this time, we will share it in ceremony. What does that mean? Don't let us confine it with words, come join us and have your own practice with the herb. 

Get ready to knock your socks off, sit cozily with a steaming bowl and sip generously while we drop into a meditation that engages sight, sound, taste, feels, all of it.
