“I swear to you there are divine things more beautiful than words can tell.” -Walt Whitman ❤️
Words can not tell the #poweroflove and all that it brings to us as individuals. Love makes us blossom, love allows us to heal, and love brings us a sense of knowing that all will be okay. Whether the love you feel this week is from your lover, child, bestie, or friend; that love is POWERFUL. There is a very special holiday approaching that allows you to step back and appreciate all who you love! Use that to your advantage this week because L-O-V-E carries us through ❤️
For all that missed Yogi Nitin Gill’s Workshop this last November, you have a chance to experience his teachings with yoga and holistic living this Thursday (February 15) @ 3:30PM. Bring a friend and experience this wholesome instructor that is traveling all the way from India ✨

“I choose gentleness… Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. If I raise my voice may it be only in praise. If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer. If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.” -Max Lucado 🌱✨🌻

#HappyMonday everyone! What are you waiting patiently for? We say #letitunfold 🙏🏼
#patienceisavirtue this month of beautiful February from learning to go with the flow yet taking your stance when it comes to your purpose! ☯️ Learning to be patient is one of the number one things we all tend to struggle with at times; the best way to look at it is:”I have my manifestations in place, it is time for them to unfold at the rate that they need to.” -
We welcome you to come learn to unfold and be patient with yourself when it comes to your yoga practice. 🧚🏼♀️ Yoga is your greatest teacher on and off the mat; we have some great offerings for you to check out this week. Take a look in our bio ⬆️✨⭐️

Happy Blue Moon in Leo, Upaya Family! 🌝
Quoted in Upaya’s Monthly Tribe Meeting’s meditation tonight: “The Moon has the power to restore optimism, playfulness, joy, and a willingness to embrace new opportunities.” The moon provides us time to let go and to bring in; with each full Moon, it is the time to spend to #letgo ✨ #letgoofwhatnolongerservesyou and you will find what will truly heighten your vibration. The Moon sure loves teaching us that 🙏🏼
Happy Monday Friends! Join us this week for a new beginner series line up and by request, a new time for Thursday evenings class! -
So much to look forward to!🍦💫
