This month our studio focus is:
We are choosing 2017 as the Year of Empowerment. There is an unprecedented amount of trauma and change happening in our communities here and throughout the world. We believe our practice is our power. It holds the key to understanding, strength, and the grace to use our own powers to serve the best good. We’ve chosen the word empowered because it is time for us all to tap into our wells of wisdom. We need balance and perspective more than ever. Workshops are a great way to deepen your practice. They can provide juice to fuel you through your weekly routines.
We’ve hand picked the workshops we believe will help you activate your practice and feel your most epic:

Studies by Russian molecular biologists have proven that when you speak the right words, in the right way, your DNA rearranges itself for the better.

Learn the yogic approach to asanas, to meditations, to chanting that open you to your ‘Prosperity DNA’.
