Before we begin, I want to remind everyone that before beginning any exercise program or making any health changes, please consult with your health care provider. As always, please be mindful and listen to your body.
Yoga means “Union”. The union of your mind, body, and soul. Hatha yoga is a moving meditation, a practice of different poses, or asanas. Listening to your body and moving with your breath as you flow through poses, or as you hold and find strength in a single pose. It is a wonderful way to ready your mind and body for a sitting meditation practice and for the rest of your day.
