“I feel a deep change inside myself since the day I came home. I have felt this on other occasions but never as profoundly as I am feeling this time. The HeartRise® Training has been deeply healing, transformational and inspiring for me. And it was so much FUN!!! I thank you both deeply for this gift. I can't wait to share what I have learned and discovered with my adult students and children of yoga. Thank you Tamika and Carolyn!” -Fabienne Suter, Yoga Educator
