    Follow the Path into the Unknown and find SPACE to shine

    We are all created uniquely and have our own imbalances. Yoga can become our own inner medicine, when we know how to listen to what the body is asking for.

What are you modeling for your children, and for those looking up to you? “…the great chewing complacency.” Did you feel that?! Ouch! This is not about making a frivolous change.…
