Autumnal Equinox

  • Essencia Yoga Wellness Center 1026 College Avenue Wheaton, IL, 60187 (map)

We are just days away from the Autumnal  Equinox and would like to invite you to celebrate with us on Thursday, September 24th at 6pm.

The Autumnal Equinox is held by some to be one of the most spiritually transformative days of the year—it is said to be a time of great confrontation between the forces of light (life, summer) and darkness (winter and death) throughout the world. How we will enter these coming seasons will be clearly reflected in what we give birth to in the following seasons.

Various teachers will be guiding us through each of the following phases of our tradition. If you would like to participate in any facilitation, please e-mail

We will ease into our 108 salutations, after a pranayama exercise for focus, a warming exercise, and then follow our time with a cool down, and community meditation.

We have cultivated a meaningful tradition by holding space for transformation that occurs with each change of season. We find it deeply enriching as individuals to celebrate this custom and include a mini vegetarian/vegan feast where we can come around and listen to one another.

As usual, be prepared for pictures and all the fun that occurs when we connect face to face.  From 6-8 we will be in our full practice.  From 8-9ish we will be partaking in further festivities. Come whenever you are able to.

Your presence is truly desired and treasured! Please Come. 
NOTE:  Mark your Calendar for the next one, Dec. 22, 6pm.
