Paula Tursi and the lovely people up at Reflections Yoga are having an open house on Friday, December 10th. They’re starting a new 200-hour teacher training in January, and have recently upgraded their school for a 500-hour certification as well. Friday is a great chance to meet the staff and check out the space.

Paula is an awesome teacher; she taught part of my teacher training at Atmananda, and has a supremely informed understanding of alignment and adjustments. She’s also super friendly and warm, go check out her class.
