Radiant Yoga at 4000 SE International Way, Suite F202, Milwaukie, OR 97222

This weekly class started in September.  I met the owner, Lauren while taking a yoga class.  I was impressed with her teaching and that she was introducing Five Element theory.  As a powerful teacher, it is exciting that she has opened her own studio.  If you know of anyone in the Milwaukie area, feel free to pass this information along.  Contact the studio directly to register for this weekly class, or simply show up.  As always, all experiences and levels are welcome to drop in at any time.
