A fun, juicy Vinyasa Flow from the heart and breath, is also essential to her package of offerings.

These 2-3 hour long, famous, Aroma Yin Immersions are often referred to as a "Bliss Out!"
YIN 1 (15-18 hrs) is offered many times a year. Trainings are open to anyone interested in the Yin side of Yoga practice. Yoga teachers receive 15-18 CE credits for this training. More about upcoming yin trainings is on the "Workshop and Training" page.
