So happy that Nistha is sharing the recorded version of Yoga for 50+. I “attended” the Feb 2 class the morning after. It was almost as good as being in the studio. I truly appreciate Nishta’s teaching style and her understanding of the needs of us older folks. Doing the session in my living room with her guidance made such a positive addition to my practice, which I was only doing half-heartedly on my own. Thanks so much. See you next time.
