Spring Equinox: Sunset Beach Yoga + Silent Disco Dance Party!
March 18, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC-7
When all the world appears to be in a tumult, and nature itself is feeling the assault of climate change, the seasons retain their essential rhythm. Yes, fall gives us a premonition of winter, but then, winter, will be forced to relent, once again, to the new beginnings of soft greens, longer light, and the sweet air of spring.
— Madeleine M. Kunin
