Tonic for the Tissues: Yin, Roll, Relax
By popular demand from ALL students, you have asked for a devoted yoga session focused on self-care using the Yoga Tune-Up® Therapy Balls and Yin Yoga. We will roll out tightness and tension in our muscles and connective tissues. Your physical and mental condition will be restored to a stress-free state. We will then melt even further practicing yin poses modified for all bodies.
