Yoga - The Art of Hands on Assisting (10 CEU Hours / Yoga Alliance, et al)

In Hatha Yoga (yoga of movement to raise Kundalini) we also use touch to create a better and safer physical alignment with our anatomy, while giving you freedom to enjoy what your body was born to enjoy. But there is more…..
