The Gift (Yoga Sanctuary)

The Gift is the culmination of a dream to offer the beauty and peace, with which we have been blessed every day, to others. We hold this space of sanctuary and retreat (The Gift), as a place to which we can invite others who seek awareness and growth, healing and solace, guidance and understanding on the path to completeness.

The Gift is not a place of worship but a space of discovery. It is not a place that dictates an outcome or a set of rules. It has no name that will create separation. It is simply, like life, like nature, like love and beauty, a gift to all.

“To be powerful and joyful in this world requires we take steps to recover our ‘self’. First and foremost in the journey to self is healing.”
