This class is inspired by my own personal journey of facing my fears and embracing change. It can be extremely challenging to leave what we know, our comforts, our community, our safe-zone and to trust that if you take a leap of faith that there will be a net to catch you if you fall. Come to this class to feel inspired to make a change in your life, to learn to trust in the unknown, and to release any unnecessary fears that are holding you back. Sequence includes trust-enhancing arm balances, power-boosting core work, fear-releasing twists, and receptive, open-to-change heart openers.
