Move, Breathe, Relax and Meditate
Let yourself delve into the world of peace and calm - an asana based on balances and movement - dance the dance of Shiva & Ganesha, allowing us to become conscious of our patterns and overcome our obstacles with emphasis in generating calm, followed by a yoga Nidra.
