Tamara R.

“The Body Mind Being Institute is more than just a certification or yoga class…it starts with a personal journey that begins a process from within one’s Self, without a prescription.  The wise, knowledgeable, authentic, guiding mentors and instructors, allow for the phenomenal connections and discernments between the individual, others, and the Divine Plan throughout the training.  Not only will you as a student or client discover higher plains unimaginable, but the alignment instilled along the way will bring one closer to a true essence in life.”  -Kelley
