Limited Capacity seats available

Been practicing yoga for a while now and starting to get curious about the practice beyond the poses? This class is for you. The sutras are essentially the psychology of yoga.

Class includes vinyasa practice and ends with seated chanting of Nicki's Top 10 Foundational Yoga Sutras.
