COMMUNITY CLASS/DHARMA TALK
This session offers an accessible, inclusive and challenging asana practice. All bodies and abilities are welcome to enjoy a customized practice that connects your breath, body, and intention on the path to self-acceptance.

No matter who you are or what you look like, you are enough. Don’t let anyone tell you your body has ‘figure flaws.’ That would mean there is such a thing as a perfect body. The perfect body is a beauty myth. We are fortunate to have mother nature create a body that is perfect for us.
