Join us at any time!
Bring:  an open heart, a yoga mat if you have one,  clothes in which you can stretch comfortably and that won’t cover your face if you bend forward


When stretching, use the breath to “melt” the muscles.  Flexibility takes time – 5 to 10 breaths, at least, as you work in a pose.  Give yourself the gift of patience and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the new places you will discover!  Find a “place of rest” after each exhale to encourage the connection between the mind and body for gradually increased flexibility.
