Body Mind Spirit
Erratic emotions, negative emotions, and depression cannot be addressed with just with one thing such as a sleeping pill, time off to rest, a favorite desert. It is an overall issue that involves all aspects of the individual: how you take care of yourself, your Self-awareness, relationships and emotional support system, unattainable expectations, your daily habits of eating, sleeping and thinking, and your overall philosophy about Self and life’s purpose.

Classical Yoga techniques are holistic and seek to balance and integrate our understanding of Self through body, mind, spirit– leading to the positive, vital and inspired life that we seek to express.
