A Week Of Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

 "Sister to sister. Hand to hand. Four goddesses, together we stand."  Tessa Buon Viso And so I returned to the place where it all began 5 long years ago.

Let go of what doesn’t serve you…

“Anger is like flowing water; there's nothing wrong with it as long as you let it flow.

Intention and Compassion; Yoga to Open The Heart and Listen To Your Inner Self
