The Adventure Of a Lifetime Awaits!

Join Tawny Villain and Jessica Long as we explore the concept of seva (sanskrit for ‘selfless service) and how we can deepen our relationship with ourselves and our community through the practice of yoga. Through the practice of seva, we are able to implement service into all areas of our lives. How will you share your heart?
