This practice is intended to be a slow and grounding invitation to reconnect with your body and your breath. You may experience many benefits from your yoga practice. You might sleep better at night, feel stronger or more flexible, or find that you navigate change better. But at it’s core, yoga is an invitation to slow down and create space to discover your true Self. I hope this practice helps you to do just that.
This is a gentle, yet strengthening yoga practice that’s great for letting go of workday stress. Move and breathe at your own pace.
This practice is all about awareness. Feeling the sensation of your body being supported by the ground below you. Noticing what the breath feels like in your body. Bringing the breath and body together through movement. And, observing the effects of the practice on your mind, body, and breath.
This practice includes some of my favorite poses to practice after a long day of working at the computer.

This practice emphasizes “flow” or moving with the breath. I invite you to let go of where you are headed and focus on the journey. Join me in practicing presence bring the mind, body, and breath together with joyful movement.
