YOGA Garden is a beautiful sacred space, which provides space to grow and learn through the practice of yoga. The 200 Hour Teacher Training provided tools to live yoga on and off your mat and applies a greater sense of understanding to you and the world you live in. How we place ourselves on our yoga mat says a lot about how we place ourselves in the world and how we interact with the world. This experience allowed me truly understand my body and it’s uniqueness - I now see my limitations as a place to push off from and grow into.  There’s a great power that happens on your mat in facing yourself and then noticing your limiting behaviors to grow to your full potential. 

Thanks to Kaitlyn Julius (Fall 2016 YG Teacher Trainee) - for her kindness and insight. She brought so much laughter and fun to the training, perfectly timed when we needed it most. She spends her working days consulting and is an adventurer and avid traveller as a lover of life, that is when she's not at YOGA Garden honing her skills as a teacher and student. Kaitlyn is new to YG, only having found us just before the training began last August and has become an integral part of the studio in that short time. We are so happy to have her in the studio!

Work HOME for a New Year...

I think I love my work home just as much as I love my home-home.  

YOGA Garden is a labor of love in all respects. 

I have worked hard to fulfill a dream of creating a place that is beautiful and inspires freedom and creativity to do the work we need to do as individuals and together as a group. A place where I can go to do my work and feel good about working hard toward my goals at the end of each day.  I LOVE that I get to share this space with so many creative, intuitive and forever curious people who have also made this space their yoga home.  

Here's to a new a year, our collective potential and working to fulfill dreams for all of us.  I wish you your dreams for 2017!!

Much Love, LVM
