Our culture in the Western world places much emphasis on seeking pleasure outside of ourselves - and from others! Whilst these pleasures can bring short term satisfaction, attachment to these outcomes can also lead to sadness, disappointment, emotional overwhelm. So where is the balance? Does it need to come in a bottle with a fancy label and expensive price tag?

This talk is delivered by Michele Jacobs, an adventurer, traveller and yoga teacher.

Michele's life was transformed by yoga, just over a decade ago. She has been sharing her knowledge with non-traditional students and traditional students alike, including prisons, psychiatric units, senior citizens, recovering addicts and children with special needs.
