Yoga Therapeutics Teacher Training

In Jillian’s workshop I learned how to prop myself in meditation and it has changed my experience completely. I feel "embodied" for the first time.  I've been meditating for a long time, but I have never felt so grounded and supported before!  - Laura Farrah. RN. RYT.
