NAMASTE AT MY DESK: 8 YOGA POSES YOU CAN DO FROM YOUR DESK
Monday, April 27 - Video Session @ 1:05PM - 1:10PM EST | Webinar Session @ 2:10PM - 2:30PM EST
My Yoga passion has built steadily since 2009. I can attest that the practice has improved all facets of my life. I've experienced recognizable growth physically, mentally, and spiritually. As a dedicated wife and a mother of three beautiful young men, before beginning my practice, I'd arrived in a place that's familiar to many women like me. I'd found it difficult, if not irrelevant to carve out what I've come to discover as very necessary time and space that's dedicated primarily to serving and nurturing "me". As I'm sure many will agree, if we are not committed to building and tending to our whole selves, we are not equipped to offer this universe our best selves.
For these reasons, I have dedicated my life to this practice daily, and have developed a burning passion, which motivated me to introduce and share the benefits of yoga with as many souls as I can. I look forward to sharing these merits, and all of the positivity that this practice offers with YOU from the moment you enter our judgment-free studio.
Yoga has a clever way of short circuiting the mental patterns that allow external chaos to intrude internal peace, and create anxiety.
