Less and More

Hatha | By Steven Espinosa on Apr 12 2012
Steven reads a quote from the 7 Steps To Happiness. A brisk Level 1-2 class begins with a steady warm up with focus on thinking less, feeling more, judging less, accepting more. Continues with a strong multiple Standing Pose Flow leading into Hip Openers and Natarajasana (Dancer) at the wall. Also includes a brief tutorial on proper lower back and head/neck alignment while Back Bending in Ustrasana (Camel). Concludes with Supine Spinal Twists before brief Savansana.
