Gentle Hatha Yoga & Gentle Power Flow Yoga/Pilates
Summer 2018 - Greetings fellow yogis.  Due to an unscheduled but necessary surgery, I have had to cancel the remainder of our summer session. Those of you who have paid for the ten weeks can use your credit anytime for classes at the gardens or my other locations. Those of you using your BCBS benefit can continue to use in the fall. Watch my website at for updates on all my classes. I will miss seeing you all but look forward to being healthy and ready to resume our practice in the fall. - Leanne
