June 2nd, 2016 by Brandi Rollins

“International Yoga Day is a worldwide celebration and acknowledgment of unity and peace.The human mind is capable of such divisiveness. The great science of yoga gives us the tools to realize our place within and as part of the whole. Each of us is a vital part of the cosmos… Sending waves of energy through time and space.

When we practice yoga we are harmonizing, quieting distractions and being at one. A healthy mind supports healthy body, healthy community, healthy world within the cosmic all. I invite each of you to come and celebrate the magnificence of noncompetitive goodness, love, clarity, tranquility, peace…YOGA!!!” ~Erica
