To Love and Let Go: January 17, 2020 (6-8pm)
Yogis believe that life will keep teaching us the same lesson over and over again until we learn it. In this beautiful memoir, Rachel Brathen (Yoga Girl!) shares many poignant life lessons by reflecting on events that occurred throughout her life.
From supporting her mother through struggles with mental health and tragically losing her best friend, to building the "Yoga Girl" business empire and bonding with the love of her life, Ms. Brathen repeatedly was challenged to learn to love and let go. These are two skills that we can all build and strengthen with the help of the epiphanies shared by Ms. Brathen!
This lovely story is a page-turner you're unlikely to put down!
