My passion is to help people connect with their power in body, mind and spirit. My classes are a response to a stressful life that can sometimes feel chaotic. Learning skills which can calm, ground and reduce stress is certainly in order. These classes are already on my public calendar for 2019
Topics for classes or presentations- The cost of a class or presentation depends on length of class, the size of the group, materials needed and travel requirements. Contact me to discuss the possibilities.
