Session 2: Free Your Spine

With Forrest Yoga, learn to do your poses with a quality of attention that frees energy and strengthens your mindfulness. Learn how to warm up andcool down properly for apex poses to stay injury free and create a whole new dimension of delicious depths to explore in your yoga practice. Exciting and profound.
