What can i expect?
Why talk about it when you can do it! Try this! Standing comfortable on two feet, centering yourself. Notice your breath for a few minutes. When breath in raise your arms and when breathing out lower your arms. That’s about as simple as it gets! Just doing that simple exercise is great. We encourage our clients to reflect on how they feel after yoga. So think about your body, your breath and how moving made you feel.
