I booked a vortex yoga with Chuck.  It was my birthday day that day.   No one else had booked a session so it worked out perfectly.  I had such a great session.  Chuck is amazing at what he does.  It truly was a treat.  He is very knowledgeable and nice.  I couldn’t have asked for a better yoga session.   If you ever book a session ask for Chucks schedule.  You won’t be disappointed.  And that view was breathtaking.  #Namaste.
