I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.
I believe in yoga as a practice to free you from your self limiting beliefs,and to allow you to live more and love more. I believe in the power of community and in the freedom that we can experience by breathing more deeply, moving more powerfully,and allowing our collective voices to be heard in song and prayer.
