Ascend Summer Solstice Celebration II

Come Join us in beautiful Cold Spring, NY at Dockside Park, on the banks of The Mighty Hudson River for a day of Yoga, Music, Art, Wellness, Food, Drink and play in honor of The longest day of the year, The Summer Solstice!

Each year Ascend dedicates the Summer Solstice Event to one of the 7 Chakras. 2018 was the year of The Root Chakra and the focus was getting rooted in this new event cycle, space, honoring and connecting with ancestors.

This year, 2019, Chakra Two, defined by The Sacral Chakra and expressed as “The Lover” in The Ascend System. The theme is LOVE ️and we’ve planned an extra-special line-up of yogis, musicians, artisans and crafters to help us celebrate the lover in each of us and charge it up under The Solstice Sun!
