She was a yoga teacher based out of Halifax who was murdered by a romantic partner in March of last year. Sunday would have marked her 34th birthday. We are asking for a donation of $10 (or more) and the proceeds will go to The Haven’s Come Alive (www.thehaven.com) bursary program. Please let us know if you plan on attending, and if the interest is very high we may need to find a bigger venue or offer 2 back-to-back classes. Leanne is honoured to help celebrate the beautiful life of this woman whose life was tragically cut too short.

INTRO TO ACRO-YOGA!
Yin Yoga- A Path to Body Awareness
Sunday, March 23rd, 1pm-3pm at Nava Yoga in Sackville
Yin Yoga helps you slow down long enough to notice how your body is feeling. By connecting to your breath, the body becomes more self-aware and sends vital energy where it is needed. In this workshop you will learn about the meridians (energy lines) of the kidneys, heart and lungs. You will also practice poses that clear energetic pathways for these essential organs to function their best!
This is a by-donation class. To reserve your spot, please write to Leanne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kelley Consolvo is a certified yoga teacher who trained at the Amana Institute for hatha yoga and at Satori in Fredericton where she completed her yin yoga teacher training. She has been teaching since 2010.
