What People Are Saying About This Program
Since I have begun my yoga journey (at 60), I have gained more flexibility, strengthened my core and lower back and gained muscle tone. I have learned relaxation and breathing techniques and learned how to slow down and be at peace. I love myself and others in a more positive way and manage stress better. Although I have enjoyed essential oils for many years, I have also learned to integrate them into our yoga practices and how different blends/oils activate different senses or feelings. I now add oils to enhance my day and have fun doing so. Yoga has totally improved my health mentally, physically and spiritually. So glad I stepped out of my comfort zone.
