9:30am to 10:30am

"Join us for the yoga series “Resolve to Evolve”. A New Year’s Resolution is a noteworthy concept to start off the year for the better. Unfortunately, often times it zeros in on the negative aspects of the Self, which can evolve into a demoting exercise. Why not take a different approach? Join Nicole for a series on the fundamentals of yoga and meditation. Experience the long-lasting and powerful effects of a sincere yoga practice, embrace positive change on a fundamental level and enjoy the physical and mental benefits so you may never have to make a resolution again!
A wonderful benefit for the body and mind whether taken in the series or separately. Live music, sound healing and optional aromatherapy are a part of the experience! All levels encouraged."
