21-Day Yoga Challenge

We successfully completed the 21-day yoga program on Sunday, April 25. It was a wonderful experience for the students as well as for me as the instructor. We had a total of 14 participants.

It was truly heart-warming to see the commitment of everyone to stay with the program even when there were obstacles presented by the daily rigors of life.
