March 17-24, 2018

Tricia DuffyWe’ll meet on the mat morning and afternoon bringing our bodies to the gentle door way of resistance, allowing, managing with observation and breath, undoing defiance, force and fear.

Beneath tracks of resistance, competition and comparison, lies all that exists beyond thinking: Bliss and Gratitude. We’ll lose our mind to come to our senses in loving kindness. Every-bodies Yoga!! We’ll turn our thoughts around. We’ll turn our bodies around. We’ll absorb the sounds and smells of the jungle and love what it is.
Simple as that—Join us!
