Discover Yoga and Art at YellowKorner Short Hills this upcoming Wednesday

Two Tibetan monks at the banks of Lake Yilung Lhatso in eastern Tibet. The icy lake of Yilung Lhatso, at 4,300 metres (14,000 feet) above see level, not far from Derge, was given its name, which means "Divine Lake of the Mind’s Delight", in memory of a Tibetan princess who passed by this lake on her way to marry one of the ministers of the legendary King Gesar. Her mind was ravished by the place to such an extent that she announced she would settle there and the minister could come to marry her there if he wished so. The engraving on the rock reads "Om Mani Padme Hum", which is the mantra of the Buddha of Compassion, Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig in Tibetan). July 2005 Credits: Photographed by Matthieu Ricard

Surrounded by Ricard’s Zen inspiring photographs, famous Equinox instructor Courtney Bevilacqua, will help you forget the pressure of life and transcend into yoga’s peace of mind sensation. Bevilacqua, a former professional dancer, walked into her first yoga class to de-stress, and she says her body has never felt so free and her mind has never felt so calm.

Join us Wednesday morning to discover your own mantra, or follow the Buddha of Compassion’s mantra “Om Mani Padme Hum,” beautifully captured by Ricard’s photograph of Lake Yilung Lhatso.
