Kim Wade, a proud daughter and sister of United States soldiers, has offered mindful yoga classes to our Veterans for over 2 years and now her program is expanding! In addition to the Monday class at Jesse Brown VA, we have classes on Tuesday (Oak Park) and Wednesday (Chicago) afternoons. Email me for details. Open to ALL levels and to ALL service members.
Yoga for Addiction Recovery classes combines the practical tools of the 12-step program with the ancient wisdom of yoga. Combining the two, this program truly addresses addiction as the physical, mental and spiritual dis-ease that it is. These ongoing classes are for anyone working with addictive patterns or affected by those patterns in others. This is a 90 minute class: a 45 minute meeting, a 45 minute taking it to the yoga mat all-level class. Classes are donation based; it’s pay-what-you-can.Learn More
This, an ongoing series, is designed to work from the inside out and presents the belief that the issues we have are internal not on a dinner plate or second bowl of pasta. We will not be dieting, counting calories or discussing good fat versus bad fat. We will spend 90 minutes together once a week and will have check ins twice a week via email. Each class includes lecture, asana, meditation, mindfulness homework and breakout sessions. You set the intention. The course holds you accountable. This course is geared to those wanting to lose more than 20lbs.
Next series begins September 14th in River Forest, IL. For those going further, the Continuing Series starts on Monday, September 9th. This course is built to help you change the way you think and feel about yourself and begin a love affair with food. Yup. A love affair!

As long as I live, I will never forget sitting on the hospital bed of my idol and grandmother watching her writhe in pain. Whimpering, she begged me to go out and find the doctor. So, my 20 year old confident self marched into the hallway insisting to the nurses...Learn More
