Help Of Ojai Class

Today was the first class of our 6 Week Summer Yoga Session for Help of Ojai.  
Alana and I are co-teaching.  We decided to alternate and assist each other.   This first class was designed to start to establish some anatomical language and cuing and get to know the peeps. While there were many regulars, there were also lots of new peeps.  This is one of my favorite classes.  We had so much fun.
