Hannah's Clients Say:
"I enjoyed Hanna's class very much. I've not taken a meditative yoga class before. It both decreased a sense of agitation about a specific incident that occurred just prior to class, and boosted my energy level by freeing energy that had been trapped by the agitating situation." Barbara S., 10/15
"Great TGIF class with Hannah. Perfect way to end the week. Lovely studio too." Jane G
"Lovely TGIF class on Friday with Hannah. Just what I needed to end the week. Easy asananas then restore and relax." Jane G.

Tuesday Night Meditation focus for June & July
Meditation offers us the possibility of peace. A beautiful practice to support coming home into peace is training in the “Divine Abodes.” These consist of loving-kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity. In June and July, join Rebecca to learn how to invite in and cultivate these qualities using specific practices to incline the heart and mind in meditation.
