Lydia Sprouts feels the deep mysticism in nature and believes in the magic of our bodies and the world around us. Her yoga classes tune you into your body, to move in harmony with your true nature. As a musician, she weaves live music into her classes with the opportunity for deep meditation. Astrology helps guide her evolution, which is the signature offering of her chart readings. She encourages you to invite your soul home through asana, pranayama and self reflection. All of these paths are tools for bettering our understanding of where we came from, and where we are going.
