Join Reverend Nafisa Sharriff for four hours (two hours each day) of traditional West African Dance and Folklore from the Old Malian Empire at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Ranch. Move to the rhythms of live Djembe Drums as you immerse yourself in these extraordinary workshops. 
Come experience this rich cultural folklore as you not only stretch, exercise, dance and sing but also unwind and release stress in the gentle meditative cool down at the end of each session.
After each workshop you are welcome to take a yoga class, enjoy the sauna, go for a nature walk and enjoy vegan/vegetarian meals – all included in the price!
If you wish to extend your stay (additional fee) you are welcome to arrive Friday, June 28th and leave on Monday, July 1st. 
A $50 deposit will reserve your place at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Ranch and ensure your participation in the African Dance Movement and Meditation Retreat. Your balance will be due three days prior to the start of the workshops on Wednesday, June 26, 2019.
All levels are welcome!
