Join us and Janice Gates to learn more about balanced living: What is it? How do we get it? Why do we need it?
Emotional balance does not have to be some far-off concept that you will achieve ‘some day.’ There are simple practical tools to help you reduce anxiety, lift a low mood and bring clarity – right now. In this workshop, we will draw on the ancient wisdom teachings of yoga and mindfulness, as well as leading edge material from Somatic psychology and neuroscience. You will learn how to navigate the ever-changing, and sometimes very challenging, flow of this human experience and come away with practices to do at home.

Janice is a Yogini, teacher, author and mother, deeply dedicated to supporting others in living authentically and from their hearts.

She currently teaches at the Yoga Garden, a thriving mindful yoga studio that she has owned and directed for 14 years. She also teaches at Spirit Rock Meditation Center integrating Yoga and Mindfulness and have led yoga and meditation retreats globally since 1992. She is author of a pioneering book; Yogini, the Power of Women in Yoga and co-founder of Awakening as Women, an online yoga and meditation community for women. Her focus is on bringing these ancient teachings into daily life in a down on the ground way.

Seating in For Goodness Sake is limited, so reservations are highly recommended.
Please e-mail nttwomen@yahoo.com by July 5th to reserve your space. Thank you.

Women Empowering Woman is dedicated to providing motivational speakers who address different aspects of achieving balance and harmony through the Mind, Body and Spirit. For more information about our organization. e-mail martha@omegaport.com.
