A Book Club on the Yoga Mat


A disclaimer of responsibility. Please know your physical limitations. 

We all do it, we live in the head, but this practice is about getting to know your body which is always present. There's a saying, "where your attention is, you are," so your body may be present; however you are not. 




Feel the sensations in your body with curiosity and get better at responding to your body in the NOW.
