One thing that seems to keep my practice fresh and my soul feeling fed is to give back to my community, friends, and family.  We yogis can do this through Karma Yoga, or selfless service to another.  This is a wonderful opportunity to practice!!

Yin Yang Yoga Nidra Workshop

Led by Gisela Crider and Stacy Winslow

Saturday, December 4th from 2 -4 pm

Love Offering suggested of $10-20 per person

This amazing class will be dedicated to Angela Benton, a fellow yogi battling cancer.  We will send out love and healing energy to her as well as all those struggling with cancer.  The love offering collected will go to Angie B. and her mounting hospital bills.

The workshop will begin with a slow yin practice followed by a dynamic flow (yang) and end with yoga nidra, or yogic sleep.  Pranayama, guided meditation and chanting will be included in this workshop.

Please come with me to support an amazing cause!

I am so excited to start this blog!  Leaving as owner of Balance Wellness Center in Concord NC was sad, but the upside to change is that it is a new beginning!  I look forward to returning to more self-study, learning more about yoga and my journey with yoga, and creating more oppotunities for workshops and retreats in different areas of NC. 

Please follow me on this blog to find out more information on yoga, meditation and healing therapies, as well as staying up to date on events that I will have scheduled. 

I look forward to starting this new journey with you!

"Ideal teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own." -- Nikos Kazantzakis
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. -Theodore Roosevelt
