New classes are about to begin…

I don’t regret the stagnant period as other areas of life and the emotional psych had to be lovingly attended to. The thought of change can seem daunting but with change comes growth and some much-needed excitement. Which brings me to the new classes… I … Read More

Depression, It’s More Than Just Sadness
| |

I spent a huge part of my youth and early to mid-twenties living in the dark abyss of depression. It clung to me as I clung to it as though it was a shadow that I couldn’t disconnect from. I felt like I was in a dark hole at the bottom of a pit, but I could always see the daylight; it taunted me and dangled freedom in my face. But, the pit was warm and comfortable which kept me … Read More

The Thing I Have Experienced With Yoga, by Jo Payton

It was apparent Anna knew her stuff and her style of teaching was very tuned into the people within it. The classes were always different never dull and always fun.
