(9:15am PDT/10:15am MDT/11:15am CDT/12:15pm EDT)
Every Friday at 12:15 EDT Gina will be offering her signature strength conditioning yoga and meditation class. Focus will be on Whole Body Integration with a keen eye on alignment, awareness of anatomy and, most importantly, the connection between the mind and the body.
How can we find integration of body/mind/heart to help us lead lives of integrity and be of benefit to Others?
That is the Way of The Warrior.
Grab a yoga mat, block(s), blanket, curiosity, and a desire to sweat.
NOTE: This is an asana and movement course.
