Tues 7-8pm Free Family Yoga at the Museum!

While organizing the upcoming Family Yoga Event at the Huntington Museum of Art on June 21st, the idea of family yoga was immediately obvious to me.  My family is non-traditional and I think of not only my husband, step-daughters and their husbands, and of course, Ellie as my family...but also my husband's extended family, my original …

Connect.

Connect has become one of the main themes, for lack of a better word, of the Yoga classes I teach.

I invite you to practice Yoga with me.
