    If you’re wanting an experience that relaxes the mind and body this is for you. I’ve gone three times now and I’m impressed with Kathy’s training. She is a gentle soul that expertly guides the small group through a variety of yoga routines. I’m finding my days, following yoga, to be more focused and relaxed. What a great discovery! Thank you Kathy!
