Morning Yoga

This class will combine breath with mindful movement to get all the kinks out, physically and mentally. Class will start with setting intentions and breath work to calm the mind and warm up the body from the inside out. Then we will move into a fun flow to loosen up the whole body while gently toning and strengthening muscles. You will leave this class feeling revitalized. All levels are welcome! It’s optional to bring a mat or towel to practice on for extra comfort.
