This ONLINE Yoga class is taught through Zoom. Register at https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/classic/ws?studioid=424765&stype=-7&sView=week&sLoc=0
Please register AT LEAST 15 minutes before class starts. Make sure your email address is correct when you register, as we will be emailing you the login information. You will receive this information at least 15 minutes before class begins. Our donation options are between $0-20 per class.
This class focuses on breath work to clean and cleanse the lungs. It also blends techniques of Vinyasa, Yin, and Hatha, alternating between holding and flowing through postures. Holding postures will allow the muscles to relax, and the deep connective tissue to be gently stretched, while flowing from one posture to the next will help to increase strength and balance. This class will help to tone muscles and increase flexibility, reduce stress, keep joints and bones healthy, and will create an overall improvement in one's mental and physical health.
