21 Flowers: A Potion for Luck and Powerful Change

I moved to Baltimore for a new job in the summer of 2008. About one month after I started work, the stock market crashed, and four months later, so did my new job.

Instructor

Brianna Bedigian, owner of Quiet Winds, LLC, E-RYT 500, certified hypnotist, reiki master, stress management consultant

Brianna believes that we all have the ability to heal, transform and evolve ourselves. To help her students on their paths, she combines a traditional three-part yoga practice with the healing touch of Reiki and the meditative aspects of hypnosis. This interwoven methodology enables students to deeply relax and fosters space and time to heal. To Brianna, yoga is an energetic expression limited by neither strength nor flexibility. She emphasizes the healing power of the breath and asks her students to open to the possibility of transformation. Brianna invites you to come to your mat as if it were an open palm of welcome encouraging you to try.
