Longing to enhance every aspect of your life?! In need of something "more" fulfilling? Well then friends I invite you to come flow with me! Experience the santosha (contentment) and awareness that the practice of prana (breathing) & asana (postures) can bring you! Join me Tuesday, April 4th at MAS for a special one time donation-based Vibrant Vinyasa session with yours truly! Revel in the sweet sweat and sinewy stretches while simultaneously slimming & strengthening your body. Allow yourself a momentary retreat from the outside world and give the gift of self love while learning & experiencing the basic techniques of vinyasa flow(moving with breath). I'll arm you with all the information, modifications, support, love, understanding, and guidance that you'll need. All you have to do is show up! Class cards are accepted or whatever you would like to donate towards the class. Our gift to the community!
