Staying centered, grounded and clear in purpose is the focus of this adult group for those who want to not feel that they are at the mercy of the external world.

Offered 2 Tuesday evenings a month (August- May). This adult group will be activity based including a brief yoga segment (Yin, Restorative) and some journaling/art-making plus discussion.

An adult group for those who are looking to kick-start their love for life and engagement in productive, inspiring activities. This group will be activity based but culminate in discussion that will encourage applying that energy and passion to their daily lives- work, family, social life, self-care and more.
