a place to BE
in community & connection 

In this space, we get to share movement, unified breathwork, meditation, self-reflection and conversation in a way that allows us to reflect on our core beliefs and perspectives to see whether they are limiting or liberating.

 

Together We explore:

~Practicing yoga, meditating, dancing, conversations and studying ourselves and different philosophies. 

~Intertwining human nature with the heart of compassion

~Each and every gathering/class/session has a sense of spaciousness, no rush, time to connect before and after.  This allows our nervous system to relax and receive.

The purpose of a place to BE is to create a space and atmosphere where everyone that longs for healing, inspiration and community feels welcome.  As we practice and reflect together, possibilities of a more fulfilling and vibrant life may become more in reach.  Living life with conscious awareness and a willingness to reflect on what creates the most peace within and in our relationships is the essence of

'a place to BE'.  

This is a community space.   This place for people desiring to slow down, find sacred space and connection.   This is a healing arts collective, and You may find yoga, dance, meditation, spoken word, kirtan and much more practiced in this space.

 

 

Do you want to learn how to thrive in challenging circumstances?  

Life holds the potential to see obstacles OR opportunities.  Intuitive Life coaching and mind/body techniques like yoga can provide tools to "See" the opportunities and live from a more liberated perspective.

This approach of integrating body awareness techniques, mindfulness practices and an exploration of meaning and purpose can lead to greater sense of satisfaction and peacefulness.  

"Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls."
