On May 18th, join Anjali & Priyanka for a nourishing and restorative day celebrating our divinity and humanity through the gifts of yoga and Ayurveda at this fairly new beloved temple in Glen Arm, Maryland.

We will move, breathe, learn, sing, and eat together and enjoy many aspects of yogic life, with short sessions led by Anjali and Priyanka (Yoga, Ayurveda, delicious food), as well as from NIH scientist Amit Singh (a short talk on inflammation and healthy lifestyle), and Panditji from the temple (sacred life from a Hindu perspective & joyful devotional songs).

It will be a day devoted to health, wellbeing, and simple spirituality, enjoyed in community & sacred space. No prior experience is necessary. Just a curious heart, gently respectful nature, and a yoga mat are needed to participate in the day.
