Radiant health is our birthright. But we get here with no manual and most of our healers are fixers. Yoga starts from a different place.
"I never knew I could love yoga so much. it has made a huge difference in my personal and professional life." ~Leon

• I can go up and down stairs with both legs instead of only using my right leg
• I no longer refer to myself as an arthritic old lady"
~ Janice S., small group and online client on her one year anniversary
Sometimes even with the best that medical care has to offer, we are left feeling like there's more to our transformation, more to feeling better.
Yoga starts with that intuition and aims at the feeling of wholeness, completeness, integrity - a feeling that can transform even the most stubborn situation because it is empowering.
Yoga will not fix you. Yoga will transform you, in ways you don't even imagine when you begin:
"I started yoga with a general goal to become healthier. I have achieved so much more that translates to my everyday life. It doesn’t hurt that I notice gains in balance and strength almost every week.” ~Dianna, dedicated private student
