This weekend is designed to help you get more in touch with your gut feeling or intuition by engaging in the Course of Miracles and the Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga process so you can break through default patterns and unconscious commitments, said Kelly Major Heath, studio director.The workshop starts Friday from 5:30 to 7:45 p.m. and continues Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This physically, mentally and spiritually challenging immersion is built around Baptiste Bootcamp Yoga practices.
