Dear Yoga Village:
Today is my 32nd birthday and I feel full of gratitude for the past 7 years with you all at Baltimore Yoga Village. Some birthdays feel more eventful than others. On this one, I just feel a sense of stability and fresh energy to offer more of this life's work in a larger way. Waiting for dreams to manifest can sometimes feel bittersweet, but then when I focus on those that have already manifested, despite personal doubts that have snuck in or snafus here ad there that result from the learn-as-you-go model I live by, I am renewed with a sweet faith in Grace and patience. Thank you for being part of this rich life and for your continued connections with eachother, for realizing the village atmosphere.
Here is another gift idea for all your mothers, who we celebrate this weekend! (or you could buy it for yourselves:) $25 off 10 class pass: reduces $15 classes to only $10.
Looking forward to...
seein you around the village!

The body is a bridge between mind and soul, heaven and earth, consciousness and unconsciousness.  The rhythm of our step, the cadence of our voice, our breath, and every gesture, reflect all our experiences: every feeling, thought, belief, event, sensation, and dream.  In Authentic Movement, we enter a discovery environment in the imaginal realm where a wellspring of bodymindspirit wisdom whispers to us, intuitively informing our bodies of exactly what we need: to heal, create, express, reflect, and connect.
