Thurs., Oct. 22
4:30-5:15 p.m. CT
This class is for those who want to move and stretch at home. We will go through yoga poses, routines, and stretches that enhance our dance technique. Be ready to wake up the joints, warm up your muscles, and bring full breath into the body. All you need is a space the length and width of a yoga mat, a firm pillow, and a strap (can be a scarf or belt).
