Yoga teaches that you have a unique vocation. A place in the world that only you can fill. And your ultimate happiness and fulfillment in life depends on whether you choose to take the time to discover, realize, and act on it. 

So, take a moment, and ask yourself the following questions:

Am I living fully right now? Am I digging down into that limitless well of potential that I know is inside me? Do I feel like I am living out my unique purpose in life? Do I even have an idea of what my purpose is? 

During this workshop, you will learn yoga's ancient teachings on dharma and life purpose, as well as explore the transformative power of sankalpa, or sacred intention we make to support our purpose and inner truth.

Take time to ignite your inner resources for living an authentic and purpose-driven life. Join Jessica for this afternoon exploration of asana, yoga nidra, and creative self-reflection, and learn how the power of intention can help you make small deliberate actions to create a life that you love.
