New Year's Evolution

Yoga Sakti and Annakathryn Carlson invite you to receive the new year with a strong, cleansing asana practice. As yogis we know the play of softness and stregnth. Together we will travel deep inside ourselves, exploring what we need to soften and what we need to ignite. This introspection leads to positive change, growth, transformation and evolution. And while we know this practice is a constant, our work is never done, the new year is a ceremonial time to fully embrace this change. All are welcome! "Practice and all is coming."

Memberships and class cards CAN be used! Or an $18 drop-in fee.

Please preregister online as this class tends to sell out!
