“I came to Yoga looking for physical toning, but the inner growth is what has kept me on this beautiful journey; Yoga has helped me with stress relief, feeling more at home in my body, developing focus, strength, confidence, awareness, compassion, and peace. It is my utmost pleasure to be able to share this most valuable and meaningful path with you.”



with Michelle Gorman

Friday, March, 31st from 4-5:30 pm $25 Preregistration Required, Sign up here! 

 This fun Yoga workshop will blend a flowing practice, partner  poses, breath work, meditation and journaling. This loving, supportive circle will help nurture self-confidence, and self esteem, while developing focus and concentration and learning tools to manage stress and anxiety.

As we get deeper into our Yoga practice we become more aware how truly connected our physical bodies are with our emotional bodies and thoughts and how one directly affects the other. This circle we will explore a little deeper where emotional energy can get caught up in our bodies and how with mindful breath, movement, and thought we can move past thought patterns that do not serve us and into a conscious state of truth and acknowledgment for our true beauty and innate gifts.

Your life really can be more vibrant, purposeful, satisfying, inspired and guided from a place deep within you.  These workshops are offered as a way to learn some simple techniques to get reacquainted with the voice of inspiration and guidance that is always speaking.  Taking time to get still and quiet, to clear the static and noise of limiting beliefs and scattered thought brings a sense of peace and insight into our busy lives and leads us in the direction our hearts long to go.

It is my joy to share my own path of learning to listen to my inner calling, follow the path of my heart and love the life that I am living.  This workshop will include discussion, guided meditation, inquiry exercises and an introduction to The True Purpose Process of discovering the difference you are meant to make in the world.

Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep, is a guided meditation that can be practiced seated or lying down. In this meditation, you will be guided to a deep awareness of body, breath, mind and energy.  Your conscious mind will gently move through thought patterns, emotions, images, and sensations that can sometimes bring about a higher form of understanding oneself.  Positive effects of this deep sleep-like practice include stress and pain relief, improved sleep and a deeper sense of calm and clarity.
