If you have a yearning to create deeper connections with the people in your life (including yourself), this series is for you.
Using the teachings of Nonviolent Communication, we will explore what it’s like to “listen from the heart” while also making sure we speak truthfully so we have a better chance of getting heard from our spouse, partners, colleagues, and friends.
Whether you come to one evening, or all four, you’ll get a chance to learn new ways of communicating, practice them with other participants, have fun, make new friends, and leave with new skills you can use immediately.
No experience necessary and all are welcome.

Besides ensuring Bernal Yoga is a wonderful place to practice yoga and movement, she currently works with individuals, groups, couples, and organizations so they can find more common ground and connection through compassionate communication.
