Bell will ring at 7:25 this week – be ready to join the breakfast line!

What an Atlanta winter we are having.  Last week we were contending with snow, ice and children home from school. This past Sunday afternoon I was out cycling in warm weather gear on the Greenway with what seemed like half of Alpharetta! I hope your week is off to a “sunny” start.


As with last week, there is a lot of information in this update!  Please read through to the end for general information, dates and registration links. Please click on these links to learn more and to register!


Our speaker this week is Veronica Rockwitz. Veronica was introduced to yoga in 1991 as a college student searching for a means to handle stress in her life.  Inspired by Rolf Sovik while studying at the Himalayan Institute in Buffalo, New York, she fell in love with it, which planted the seed for her 25 year yoga journey. She has since studied under notable mentors and began teaching in 2007. Veronica truly believes that yoga is the foundation for a balanced lifestyle which can open one to life’s infinite possibilities.    Veronica is also a Registered Dental Hygenist, and is married with two children. Veronica’s experience as a healthcare professional contributes to her understanding of whole body health that she is able to share with her students. 


We will learn more about Michelle Miralles, as she will give us our Vocational Minute this week.
