This is the perfect time to detox our bodies and we can use our yoga practice to facilitate cleansing on many levels.
During this yoga workshop, certified Anusara yoga instructor, Samantha Fox Olson will guide students through a cleansing and flowing practice. Additionally, I will open the workshop with very helpful instruction regarding alignment principles that will be applied during this practice to facilitate an effective yoga detox.
