This event has been postponed. Jai Gopal has badly injured her foot, please send her your healing prayers! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the wait list for the next date.
Join Jai Gopal and Kateri Gauthier for a healing afternoon in service to ourselves and our Earth.
Come and connect with others who care about the earth to collectively raise our energy and make conscious steps to support our planet. We’ll reflect on how we feel about climate change and share those feelings with others. We’ll do some pranayama, Kundalini Yoga, and mantra to elevate our energy and feel deeply connected to the planet. We’ll commit together to our own individual action plans to make a difference – actions that work with where we are at right now.
You’ll go home with Kundalini Yoga tips for healthy living and self care, ideas for organizations that you can support or join in support of the earth, plant-based recipes, and your own 4 point personal action plan to help heal the planet.

She is passionate in sharing her knowledge of Kundalini kriyas and mantras to help others use their gifts, continue to grow, and be the change they wish to see in the world.
When she is not teaching or practising yoga, Jai Gopal can be found bicycling around the city, nibbling something deliciously vegan, running the Toronto Vegetarian Association book club, dancing with friends, or snuggling up with her adorable kitties and partner.
