Welcome back to winter yoga classes!

The holidays are over and winter is here in full force! Need to stretch? Need to bend? Need to breathe? Look no further than your yoga mat! Hope to see you at one (or more) of my classes this season.

With the fresh perspective a new year brings, the cooling and cleansing energy of a full moon (tonight), and a deeper appreciation of the healing power of the body and mind, I’m looking forward to investigating with you what yoga has to offer us both on and off the mat. AND I can’t wait to try out my new boots…super-duper-non-slip-really-warm-and-cute-too boots from Sperry!! Look out, black ice, you will not get me again!
