Can you get down to the floor? Give our Yoga Foundations class a try. Designed for beginners or those who need more time getting down to and up from the floor. Here’s what Cynthia T. had to say…
“Hi, I really enjoyed Lynn’s yoga foundations class. I have avoided yoga classes before, but with her class, she gently instructed us and I never felt judged. She would help and say things like ‘go as far as you can— yogi’s choice’. This felt inclusive and empowering. “
