Beginning NEXT week the group will begin meeting at a new place and time at Body tao spa llc (inside the Holiday Inn Downtown) at 6:00pm. See you on the cushion.

Chakra Balancing Practice

  
If you feel a little “off” this week, consider:

1) it’s Christmas week

2) many of you just finished finals

3) it will be a full moon for Christmas 

4) it’s Winter Solstice

Join us tonight for a Chakra Balancing practice to celebrate life at “full tilt.” We meet at 6:30pm at River Oaks Square Arts Center. We will have tea! It’s free as always.
