Lewis Tangi “I facilitate meditation. Meditation is also union. Sending your energy and focus to isolated parts of your body, anchored by your breathing, can improve your overall wellness. In class we guide ourselves inward, to loosen ourselves, to accept and release accumulated energies that we are holding. Meditation has been a deeply practical part of my life. It is a process, a journey, an experience unique to every individual. I wish to share with you my practice while guiding you to find your flow through meditation.”
