GOOD MORNING YOGA (Recent Classes)

These are classes that I teach every weekday morning over Zoom. These classes always are focused on leaving class feeling a bit better and more positive than when you arrived. They are accessible to everyone, and include the physical practice, but may also include philosophy, breath-work, jokes, and fun stories. This is just like being in a real class..unedited, no music. Just the class and community. You can imagine you are part of the group in the live class. :-)
