Yoga and meditation provide an ideal practice combo to bring us back to beginner’s mind – a sense of relaxation, effortlessness, and unconditional cheerfulness. We will alternate between meditation practices and yoga sequences to work with our mind and body that can naturally bring us back to fresh start.
