Have you wondered why every new year, we make resolutions that we give up on quickly, and promises we usually don’t keep?

This year let’s choose to focus on our own healing and taking responsibility for our own personal wellbeing.

Join us at the start of 2022 Jan. 1st-7th as we discuss and contemplate 7 lessons that through the lens of yoga can help lead us to a path of lifelong wellness. 

I know, in my own experience, the journey to healing can be long and isolating but it doesn’t have to be.  Yoga gives us tools we can use to overcome, in order to create lasting change and thrive as individuals. 

 

Let’s support ourselves and each other as we share our experiences  along the path of healing
