Accompany Summer and Drew in a very special evening of deep Self Discovery! As Drew provides a heartbeat of live music, Summer will guide you into a breath centered asana practice set for all levels with mindful challenges designed to increase prana, vitality and empowerment of Self.
Through this hour long practice you will build strength to the physical body, focus of attention to breath and increase a present state of Awareness, only to prepare you for an incredible meditation afterwards. Summer will take savasana to the next the level, as she guides you into the depths of your Being, beyond the physical and subtle bodies where each individual's True Nature and Authenticity resides.
This gentle Yoga Nidra will take you on a journey of body, breath, mind and Spirit, into the depths of discovering your authentic inner rhythm and dance with the hum of the Life Force within ALL; which is always singing, dancing and shining even in the most distressing moments of life. While in a deep state of relaxation, Drew will gently guide you deeper into rejuvenation as he plays melodic rhythm on his guitar softly in the background. This is a true healing and revitalizing treat for all to experience.

Drew McManus, lead singer and songwriter of Satsang, creates music for his soul, fueled by the ever present task of personal growth and the beautiful life that he found in the Beartooth Mountains of Montana. Commenting on his difficult upbringing in Des Moines and residency in Chicago, McManus says, “I grew up in an environment where aggression, violence, abuse, and addiction were always present. It made me a lot of things; angry, sad, and ashamed. I hated my story and I was a slave to addiction. I tried for so long to hide from the reality of my story and the reality of how beautiful life could be.” It wasn’t until an intense spiritual experience lead Drew to break his cycle of addiction. “I had changed my entire outlook on everything” say McManus, “I began to realize that had everything not happened to me exactly like it did, I would not be exactly who/where/what I am right now.” In an effort to share his revelation with others who may be in the same predicament, Drew began to write every day. “I was flooded with the urge to write down the lessons that kept revealing themselves in this surrender. And the connections I began making with other people by making this music vulnerable and open, began to change everything.” These songs are a statement of lessons learned and a further understanding of self. “The whole story is what makes it beautiful, not just the good bits.”
