January 2021
Happy New Year!
We all hope for new beginnings and lots of healing this year.
When you are setting your resolutions and intentions, try using the words "I can." Often this wording can help your psyche to feel the possibilities rather than the "shoulds". 
May 2021 be the best year ever!

Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training, Level One                             

Typically, Level One Kundalini Yoga teacher training takes place each year in Chapel Hill. Due to the rising cases of COVID 19 as we head into winter, it is likely that we will be pushing out our start date yet again so that we can meet safely in person when it is time to take this transformative journey together.
Inquire about exact dates and request an application:
Level Two: "Vitality and Stress" will also be rescheduled to take place on Zoom. The old dates were: February 27, 28, 29 and March 5, 6, and 7. It's likely that the course will take place over a longer period of time than 6 days, so that we don't have to spend so many hours on the computer. Stay tuned!
