Sequoia Henning
Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Ashtanga Yoga)
Sequoia’s yogic journey began with the very disciplined practice of the Iyengar tradition. After years of practicing the Iyengar lineage, she cultivated her own personal practice and discipline, which organically transformed her asana practice into a mixture of the Ashtanga and Hatha schools. Now, she teaches the traditional practice of Hatha yoga incorporating space for inner awareness and witnessing, which allows one to deepen inner connection beyond the physical body.
Tiffany Brulotte
Also known as "Sparrow Grace", Tiffany is a Canadian based singer-songwriter, kirtan artist, and healer. Her performances include her original songs and select cover tunes woven creatively with traditional Eastern mantras and call and response kirtan chants. The mantras access a deep vibrational wisdom that is beyond words and the songs speak truth that can be understood by the head and heart. The end result is a musical experience that is heartfelt, uplifting, and inspiring.
