Heart and Donation Based Practice

By Maitri Asinovski

I love that there exists, in the center of everything, a little oasis known as Bhakti yoga shala. This magical place is a force of light and positivity and will lift you up beyond belief.

I teach a 1pm yoga class on Fridays here. And I would love for you to join me!
