3 Keys to Living Clean
After triggering a debilitating autoimmune disease at age 24 in an attempt to clean up her own psyche from childhood abuse and the false paradigms that were running her life, Julie Cielo has dedicated her 20 year career to teaching people how to “Live Clean” by unlocking the blockages that hold us back from living the life of our dreams with the highest expression of happiness, fulfillment, and purpose.
In this 2 hour interactive presentation, you will discover:
• How "Living Clean" has much more to do with what you need to let go than what you need to acquire
• That you can and deserve to live the life you desire without all the struggle
• It’s possible to increase your success and still stay in harmony with your values and spiritual beliefs
• The subconscious beliefs from our past can be changed and our history does not determine our future.
• Simple thinking strategies to guard you from fear, worry, and doubtThe Yoga Spot at El Pinto is featuring national innovators as well as local stars each Sunday. The goal is to expand access within Albuquerque to some leading national experts while supporting a stronger health & fitness community. Brunch follows each class with a buffet with traditional healthy New Mexican cuisine as well as vegetarian and Vegan options.
“The trees in the El Pinto park that cool the area were grown as saplings by my brother and I,” explains John Thomas. Birds now call the park home and it is a peaceful location on the side of El Pinto used for special occasions.
Reservations are not needed for the best yoga spot in town. Enter the main entry and you will be directed through the patio to the park. Please bring a yoga mat, but El Pinto has a few on hand that can be borrowed. Class begins at 10 a.m.
