Breath Workshop with Bette Willins

Join us for a breath workshop with Bette Willins!

The word ‘inspire’ means to draw in breath. It also refers to the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. We hope this workshop motivates you to do both.
