WHAT TO EXPECT

Yoga instructor, Gina, will lead a relaxing yoga class to help de-stress, aid in mobility, lengthen out the body, and help participants focusing on the strength inside of us. You will feel strong and supported. It's when feeling those things, we are able to serve and strengthen our relationships with others. So, commit to your relationship with yourself, first! "Love yourself first and everything else falls into line." After the yoga class, Gina and Macaila will lead a self- reflection for intention setting and affirmations. It's time to let go of what longer serves you- say goodbye to self-doubt and create space for new things.
