Yoga and relaxation

Ref: C3530739

There will be a focus on relaxation throughout this class. We will begin with some moments of calm where we lie down and unwind. We will take time to focus on the breath and rest between postures. We will bring our attention within throughout the class so that we can slow down and find some inner calm. We will use the breath to aid relaxation and of course we will do various yoga postures. I will end the class with a guided meditation.
