March update

In these times of uncertainty, it's important that we take care of ourselves in many ways. For you, that may mean coming to class. It may not. Please listen to what is right for you. I think social distancing is a smart idea, but I will continue to hold Thursday night class at Mata Shakti ashram as we work on keeping our bodies healthy and uplifting our spirits. Please know that I will be meticulous with disinfecting shared spaces and recommend that you bring your own mat, etc., to avoid any contamination of shared mats or blankets. If you are not feeling well, please stay home and take care of yourself. We are all being asked to slow down. Not a bad thing! But please know that unless we have a dramatic change of some sort, you are welcome to join me here on Thursday evenings for class.   Be well!

The spring Equinox is March 19 at 11:50 PM Eastern Time.
This is a time when all the plans made during the cold months can start manifesting and taking fruition.
What plans will you manifest this spring?
