Immerse yourself in the captivating melodies of live Bansuri and the enchanting Wisdom Sound Experience, expertly performed & lead by renowned musician, Vinod Prasanna. Let the soothing sounds wash over you as they transport you to a realm of tranquility and serenity, as Inner Om with PJ will guide you through a rejuvenating Yin & Yoga Nidra session. Allow yourself to surrender to the gentle yet powerful practice, as you explore the depths of your being and connect with your true self on a profound level.

This event is truly unique, as it seamlessly merges live sound with the transformative power of yoga and meditation.

Our intention is to create a space where you can honor your body's needs and listen to its wisdom. It will always guide you towards your truth.

To enhance your experience, we will be providing warm chai and delectable nibbles for you to savor at the end of your practice. The nourishment extends beyond the physical, as we believe in nurturing your mind, body, and soul.

Don't miss out on this extraordinary event of self-exploration and rejuvenation. Reserve your spot now and step into The Union of True Self, where the harmony of sound and practice awaits you.
