registration is open: 2017 workshops

Hey you guys-
I’m in Hawaii with my parents and my Ironman enjoying  much needed Vitamin D, adventures and quiet time to refresh my soul. But I didn’t want you to miss these out on these Spring 2017 Workshops!  If you’ll remember from this post; I’m concentrating this year on teaching from a place of total integration: presenting the holistic philosophy and practices of yoga that help us find healing in mind, body and spirit.
Together in my blog, we are looking at the yoga philosophy one Sanskrit term at a time and figuring out how the teaching offers opportunities for better self-care. 
Want a re-cap? Check out these posts:
