Spring Social is a wonderful way for you to get to know other current teachers and honor the rich diversity and history of Yoga in greater Cincinnati area and network info about you, your classes, studio. Two teachers will present an educational yoga practice for all.

Annual Dinner and guest presentation is a few decades old/young annual event (since 1975) where teachers and now students gather for social re-unions, networking, and for a special guest yoga presentation.
