Class routines are mostly performed on the floor on a yoga mat; please wear clothing that is easy to move in and comfortable. Equipment will be provided for the duration of the class. This group class will be facilitated by certified Yamuna practitioner and veteran spouse, Kelsey Morozow Burbrink. Visit yamunausa.com for more information on the YBR technique.
