More than Mothers Day

mind body connectFrom Dawn Greenfield, Yoga Born Owner
The Yoga Born mission is to help align you more consistently be the best version of yourself. Believe me when I tell you, I know it takes time, practice and patience.
I have been using the tools of yoga and meditation practiced in gift cert 2014 .01 WEB SLIDERthe studio to support my journey and to be honest it’s been challenging, eye opening and always rewarding!
But the only way any of it works is if I actually get on my mat, let myself be guided and stay aware.
The first time I took a yoga class my intention was to expose my elementary school aged daughter (Veronica) to a new experience. Looking back I feel incredibly blessed to receive the guidance to do so.
WOW look were we are now! I started a yoga DSCN1028business from scratch (that is the Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business of the Year), I met an incredible partner (Rob), Veronica is about to graduate college, she is a yoga teacher working in my business and by my side, we’ve met YOU and I know there is more good stuff on the way!!!!!
I’m reaching out because I fully understand continuing to practice yoga isn’t easy during a busy life full of the unexpected (welcomed & not). 
Yoga can be a constant support for my life, I hope to inspire you to continue on your yoga journey.
Yoga Born has a few adjustments in the May schedule and I want to encourage you to practice, practice, practice!

Together, your two feet contain more than 50 bones, accounting for about one-fourth of all the bones in your body. And somehow they also make room for more than 60 joints and 200 muscles, tendons, and ligaments that hold them together and help them move.

Your feet take a beating, every day. Foot pain relief is possible!

It’s easy to overlook the importance of healthy feet, but foot-related problems can affect your general health.
