We are inviting you to this very first Men's Circle so we can find out about your hopes, heart intentions, and ideas for how we might function as a group and individually.
The group will be led by Eric Hudson, a relationship counsellor with over 30 years experience. Eric has recently joined our studio and is now an aspiring yogi with a passion for our yoga community.
