Potluck and Speaker Roni Sloman

Roni Elissabeth is the owner of Bella Prana Yoga &; Meditation Studio in Tampa Florida. Roni is an RYT 500hr yoga instructor, certified life coach, meditation coach, writer,and speaker. She is a contributor to FOX 13, Elephant Journal, My Yoga Online, Integral Magazine, and Tampa Bay Wellness Magazine. After college Roni spent two years in full-time ministry and completed the first year of her Masters in Divinity. She then decided to pursue her love of the outdoors and completed 45 continuous days in the wilderness in Outward Bounds Instructor Training, two ice climbing expeditions, and learned to rock climb and mountaineer.  Not long after, Roni continued her education and was trained as an Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician. In light of her previous mission work in Nicaragua and Costa Rica, she decided to put her new medical skills to use, working with AIDS and malaria patients for two months at a rural clinic in Africa. It was shortly after she returned from Africa that an unexpected period of depression led her to the practice of meditation. In the search for more information on this ancient practice she learned of the intimate relationship between meditation and yoga. Experiencing stillness and awareness helped to pull her out of depression and she quickly wanted to share this transformational practice. Roni teaches the freedom of personal accountability and the option to soulfully choose your own thoughts.

    Thank you all for a great time last night. It was very nice to meet you all!

    If anyone is interested, there is a Vegan meetup tomorrow at Trang's Vietnamese restaurant. I've been to a few and the food is always amazing! It's not raw but is delicious. FYI: I highly recommend getting there a little before 5:30. It gets really busy and the line can get long which results in the food running out within a few hours. Hope to see some of you there.
