Restorative Yoga led by Leslee Bassin with Live Music with Shantala
With the use of props to completely support the physical body, we will be guided into longer held poses allowing a deep state of exploration, connection, awareness, and acceptance. Combined with the transformative healing quality of Shantalas music, this class invites you to draw your attention inward creating a sanctuary for mind, body, and spirit. From this place of inner stillness we have the ability to remember who we truly are and shine from the inside out into the world.
