The yoga & chanting retreat I co-facilitated with musical siren, Heather Houston, on June 25th was very touching & sweet. The loving connection among the women was palpable, as we gathered together to sing warm blessings to one of the women for her 60th birthday.

Heather and I will be offering another Women's Yoga & Chanting Retreat on Saturday, October 22nd in Half Moon Bay. The first part of our day we will be practicing yoga & chanting on the beach. After a picnic lunch on the beach, we will transition to a lovely seaside yoga studio for more yoga, chanting and a delicious, organic meal by Mauro, the owner of the studio. Since our June retreat was full with a wait list, we do encourage you to register as soon as possible to be sure your space is reserved.

Beach Location will be sent via email upon registration

Saturday, October 22th, 2011 ~ 9:00am to 8:00pm

"Heather's brilliance, radiance, glow, and presence create a very inspiring and magical feeling in her circles... I loved the diversity of cultural songs, the rounds, and harmonies." - Mary, Aptos, CA
"I love how Heather encourages women to sing and share their light. I love how excited she gets when we sing. There is such an appreciation and love that her energy surrounds us with, and it helps everyone feel safe."
