Winter Sadhana

Dec 27 - 29
with Karin Young & Tracy Harvey
ALL Levels
3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Wed-Thur-Fri
$50/3 days

"Sadhana" means practice. When we commit to a practice for a set length of time we are more likely to sustain a regular personal practice afterwards.

Each day we will target specific categories of poses and specific areas of the body. The first half hour will be gentle openers to prepare the body and during the last half hour we will gradually cool down the body and finish with a luxurious Savasana.
