A class for women to open into connection with the sacred beauty within. This practice is an opportunity to explore the hidden places – our uniqueness – and places that are asking to be honored and witnessed, which sometimes need time and space to unfold: strength and softness – we hold space for that. Through meditation, breath and asana we open to connection — the inner flow — and the possibility of discovering something new.
