We will explore the classical yoga style of the Sivananda Lineage, a repetitious style that has five points of practice: proper breathing, relaxation, exercise, diet and positive thinking meditation. Each session is 75-90 minutes and includes this traditional routine to some degree with a special focus on the five points of practice, mobility and flexibility, balance and emotional awareness. Open to all levels.
