  • Fusion Yoga 6382 W Jefferson Blvd Fort Wayne United States (map)

The work of yoga is to honor the inner experience of each individual, especially children. What a gift it is to use the tools of developmental psychology to connect with the tender and precious essence of children with struggles.
