Yoga Students


OUR APPROACH:

DivineSense deeply believes in the wisdom of the ancient spiritual philosophies and practices

that inspired, nurtured, and preserved all forms of life for hundreds of years.

 

With this deep reverence for the ancient spiritual ways, we offer classes in spiritual philosophy and spiritual practices from both the Black Diaspora and Yoga to support spiritual, mental, and physical balance, health, and wellness.

 

It is our hope that we can guide our students in recognizing and connecting with their divine sense as means of loving and sustaining themselves as they move through the many changes along life's journeys.
