with Mayuri Gonzalez (E-RYT)
Prepare your body, mind and heart for the day with a movement practice on the beach. Together, we will explore mindfulness through movement with a gentle yoga class appropriate for all levels of students. Through mindful moment, classic yoga postures, breathing practices, and relaxation, students will be guided to focus awareness on the changing sensations in the body and the subtleties of the breath while releasing any holding and tension in the body.
