This week around my kitchen table I will be discussing the Mind, Body, Spirit connection and the incredible benefits of practicing YOGA with my dear friend Jo Manuel founder of the Special Yoga Foundation.

Jo is a truly remarkable woman, an amazingly compassionate and caring person, she is incredible teacher, a gifted healer and a powerful inspiration to many many people.

She will be sharing her wisdom and experiences with Yoga and Meditation on her personal path to enlightenment which led her to create her very Special Yoga centre for helping parents and children with special needs.

The Mission of Special Yoga Foundation is to reach as many children with special needs as possible throughout the UK and worldwide with their therapeutic yoga programme.

Jo created the Special Yoga Foundation CIO to provide a therapeutic service to children worldwide.

I will also be sharing my latest guidance to help up lift, Inspire and to empower us all.

So please come and join us Raising Vibrations Across the Nations.
