Stiff White Guys Yoga, Sunday 10am

12 Peeps

Lots of wrist issues and one woman arrived with glass in her hand that she could not get out, so down dog and such felt like a bad idea. So we emphasized the breath and i talked a lot about how yoga techniques work. I totally enjoyed this class. There was a lot of space and emphasis on staying present in the pause. Talked about becoming our own drugstore, or learning how to "take a hit" off ourselves.
