Yoga for stress relief

Ref: C3530732

In this course we will focus on going within. We will start by working with the breath to calm the mind. We will then do some gentle warm-up exercises. We will focus on the areas where we hold tension aiming to release it. We will explore several different yoga postures before finishing with a final deep guided relaxation.
