The Art of Lila: Benefit Class for CoachArt with Laura McKellin + Nicolette Ficchi

To be of service to others without expectation is found deep within the heart of yoga. Selfless action fosters connection, community, and joy for all involved. Join our 300-hour advanced graduates for a Lotus Style vinyasa flow class to benefit CoachArt. Inspired by Lila, divine play, this class will be filled with fun transitions, dynamic sequencing, and live music. CoachArt is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides free, high-quality arts and athletic activities to children and their families impacted by childhood chronic illness.
