Move Your Purpose: a Yoga Coaching Workshop

  • Thames Street Yoga 198 Thames Street Newport, RI, 02840 (map)

Have you been looking for a new direction for your life and career? Would you like to reaffirm that you're on the right path? Define and refine your purpose at this integrative yoga and coaching workshop. We'll explore the concept of Ikigai, a Japanese term that translates as "reason for being," where what you love, what you're good at, what the world needs and what you can get paid for align at that "sweet spot" known as your purpose.
