Our class series is designed to nurture, enliven and grow your understanding of yoga. Gain practical tools to enhance your posture, breath, and mindful movement in the studio and in daily life. Sessions will be held within a nurturing community. This workshop class will have a theme each week. Each lesson builds on the previous, with generous support and resources along the way.
