We all have an operating system and in many cases it has limited our connection to our infinite power. We have come into this mode of operation from the fear of losing love in some way. By learning how to shift our operating system we are able to see our world from a new perspective. As we land in this new perspective we are then able to live an amazing life from a deeper state of love.

Life Empowerment II is the next step in this training for all people.   A yoga practice is not required! Yoga is not involved in this Life Empowerment, so please get your practice in before or after. This is a study group that will help you dive deep into yourself to open new dimensions that hold you back from landing in the most powerful you. The Life Empowerment series is lead by Sid McNairy. Sid is the owner, founder and operator of Sid Yoga Center in Towson, Maryland and the author of Walking with Love and Empowerment and Beyond. Sid has helped thousands and thousands before you see this perspective, and he can help you, too. Live the life you deserve to live!
