It’s been awhile! I’m sending you love from l’Aquitaine, where I’ve had a fantastic vacation with my boys. But I’m looking forward to seeing YOU again! Yoga classes will start up on Saturday, September 1st – and on Sunday, the 2nd we’ll kick off the season with class and satsang. Enjoy the rest of this month and see you soon. ❤️
