ABOUT THE FACILITATORS:
Dennis and Kathy Lang, E-RYT 500/YACEP, are both certified instructors of Yin and Vinyasa Yoga since 2005. The couple brings a unique perspective by co-teaching and as musicians, they use crystal bowls, Native American flute, sitar, gong, drum and Spanish guitar to enhance their classes.
