Remembering Our Medicine & Honoring the Elements Within with Jose Yogi Augie Aguilera

WEDNESDAY 7:00-9:00 PM PST NOVEMBER 18th

On Wednesday November 18th we will meet with Jose to honor the direction of the North and the element of Air.

Jose Yogie Augie Aguilera will guide us in finding the air medicine within each of us through breath work and mindful exercise to help clear the mind and return to our innate wisdom.

Yogi Augie was born and raised in Salinas, California as the youngest child of farm working parents who immigrated from Michoacán Mexico. Yogi Augie was raised in a family who practiced the ancient healing art of “Curanderismo” where his mom, aunts and sister used the medicine plants and prayer to help people in their community.  Yogi Augie has a degree in Human Communication and has earned several yoga certifications.  Yogi Augie has spent the last 25 years working as a counselor in higher education, non-profits and mental health wellness institutions in Monterey, San Francisco and Riverside, California.

Yogi Augie has helped his community as a healer for the past 10 years through a private practice where he combines several modalities of healing.  In his private practice, Yogi Augie offers guidance as a vessel from a spirit guide who has one of the highest vibrations of love and through angel card readings.  Yogi Augie also walks people who seek help through powerful healing meditations to remove toxic energy from their mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual bodies caused by past trauma.  Yogi Augie focuses on helping those that struggle with depression and anxiety and created a beginner’s yoga sequence aimed at reducing symptoms of anxiety.  Yogi Augie also teaches Raja Yoga or what some refer to as Ashtanga Yoga or the Eight Steps of Yoga.
