this morning I took the 7:15 am yoga class with Joanna , it was the exact amount of strength, stretch and balance practice I needed today. I love how she adjust my body during the class, it is so important to have the right alignment. She is clear and explains so well what is being done , my new favorite part the hand stand , I usually am so scared of being upside down , I am uncomfortable doing it but with Joanna's help and technique with 2 blocks , it is so easy and painless !!!! I am most worried that her classes are going to be too busy very soon !!! Until then I am enjoying the semi private atmosphere ...thank you Shiva Yoga for reopening this yoga studio and making it look much better.
