Yoga as Refuge during Tough Times
The practice of yoga is especially important when we feel confined and anxious; we feel our bodies tightening. Each class is dedicated to support the release of stress and renew a sense of flow in body, mind and spirit.
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT ZOOM YOGA: Virtual classes allow you to be with YOUR experience without the distraction of other participants in the room.
At the same time, I cannot see you well enough to ensure safety.
You are responsible to gauge the safety of your practice within your personal limitations. It’s better to build up strength rather than force or strain. The experience you should notice is exertion with relaxation. Stay safe and adapt the teachings to your level of energy and flexibility, inviting some joy and release into your day! Come try it out!
