What I discovered over the years is that true beauty lies within.  “Balanced Beauty” is about feeling beautiful and confident both inside and out.  Balanced Beauty is achieved through Yoga workouts, including group in-studio classes, yoga hikes, dance-yoga and breath-work for meditation.  Then, as a perfect compliment to your yoga glow, enjoy a make up consultation with tips and tricks to achieve the best look for you. The beauty and strength you create for yourself with “Balanced Beauty” will result in visible confidence which will follow you as you enter the home and workplace.”
