Nourishing the Intuitive Yogi Within: Yoga & Meditation with kristin

We often move through our yoga practice day after day in the same ways, only modifying if we are injured or under the weather. Together we will learn to awaken our inner eye, listen to our inner guidance—opening to the beauty of our own practice, meaningful in every moment and layered with intention. We will play with classical postures and sequences ~ both flowing and holding, actively and passively, aligned and grounded. Kristin will also create space for you to have time to explore your own self-guided practice. Meditation, mudra, mantra and different techniques to dive into will be experienced daily!
All levels are welcome and attendance will not be kept each day :) This time away is for you to do as you’d love to do!
