Retreat brings us closer to our hearts

What an incredible experience. This Sunday, up in a private retreat home in Rollingsville, I chanted with a wonderful group of women. It was so nourishing. We smelled the marigold pushpamalas, the roses from our mother puja, rose incense, oils from our foot and temple massages and wonderful food smells from the kitchen. Thank you for the sounds from your heart; the chanting, the kirtan music, the wind and the wind chimes outside.

I feel closer to my heart and to all of you.

Hari Om.

Free Abdominal Split (Diastasis) checks tonight!

Hi Everyone,
I am offering Free Diastasis Recti (abdominal split) checks tonight at Studio Be Yoga (2077 30th Street) from 7:30-8pm.

Any person can have the injury, but often pregnancy can create it. You can also have this condition if you use your abdominal muscles incorrectly or lack of understanding of how to use them correctly.

Some women have had this condition for years and wondered why they didn't feel connected to their center and why their belly still looked pregnant.

The check only takes a few minutes and it will give you information on what you can do to heal this area and what you should avoid.

Please spread the word!
