We are also ecstatic to announce our new partnership with Elevate Akron, a non-profit organization that develops connection, resiliency, and wellbeing in our communities by offering accessible yoga for all. They host the largest yoga festival in Ohio and are back for another year of fun and community connection! This year’s event is on July 14, from 4:30-9:30 pm, at Lock 3 Park in Akron, Ohio. Learn more and keep in touch on Facebook for the ticket release this spring!

Quote I’ve Been Pondering…

“To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions” -Deepak Chopra
