June 10, 2017 Bhakti Barn Yoga

Join Monica at Bhakti Barn Yoga for her workshop, “Cultivating Your Inner Warrior,” and book signing event! Many of us hold the key to our powerhouse, but have never unlocked the door. We are stronger than we realize and the universe is patiently awaiting our arrival. In this workshop, we will begin by clearing our mind in meditation in order to allow our true selves to open up.  It is important to clear out the noise that often gets in our way. After meditation, we will identify what scares you, what holds you back, and ways unleash your inner warrior. Everyone will be given time to write out their fears, emotions, roadblocks, and ultimate goals. Afterwards, Monica will share ways to #SPREADYOURWARRIOR with the world around you and share her new memoir, The Cancer Warrior!

Every warrior will receive a free gift with each purchased copy and one lucky winner will receive a FREE DOOR PRIZE!

1pm-3:30pm at Bhakti Barn Yoga 158 Spring St. Millburn, NJ
