Hart Lazer Retreat this summer: Wednesday, July 22nd-Satruday, July 25th, 2020

Private Sessions & personal training: Private sessions can be helpful if you have a health issue that you would like to address in a more personal setting; a special yoga interest, like chanting, meditation, or philosophy, to name a few; or want some help to develop an at-home program and just check in with the teacher from time to time. One-on-one or group sessions are available, and families are welcome! Check with me to discuss an appropriate cost.

Unsure about whether the class is on? Check for cancellations on the Sail Loft Yoga Facebook page!

Holiday idea: give yourself, or a friend, a gift of time at the Sail Loft. Cathy can assist with a guided meditation, some chanting, or perhaps a long relaxation, or she can offer organize a session for a group of friends to do together.
