Yoga postures combined with therapeutic breathing not only relieves stress and tension from body and mind, but are weight-bearing and helpful in strengthening bones and raising resting metabolic rate for weight loss. Each class ends with a luxurious restorative pose. Suitable for everyone, from the inflexible office worker to the weekend warrior athlete looking to stretch, and for anyone needing to alleviate stress or anxiety.
