No matter how often this pose is practiced in a class, I find that there are so many opportunities to explore it in new ways each time. Much like baking… there are so many components (ingredients) and by tweaking things slightly here and there, you always work toward perfecting your results! Beautiful cutters, piping and contest. Thanks for the opportunity to participate! Happy holidays!

  • Kris

    SAVASANA ALL THE WAY! The savasana is the perfect beginning and end pose; what I call the “bookend” pose. Before your routine the savasana gets you relaxed, focused on deep breathing, and immersed in tranquil thoughts. At the end of your routine the savasana allows the tension from your poses release, as you enjoy the restful wind-down.
