"However men try to reach me,
I return their love with my love;
Whatever path they may travel,
It leads to me in the end"
My experience of the OSYB Community is what I always dreamed of warm, safe, inviting, open, kind, growing and expansive.
Open Sky Yoga provides a loving environment where I can stretch my body, open my heart, and transcend self imposed limitations.
