Faith & Flow Evening Yoga (30 min)
A faith-based relaxing flow to help you wind down
Join Sherrell in a 30-minute faith-based, relaxing flow to end your day and get ready for bed. This flow is focused on releasing stresses from the day, finding your zen, and opening the body to release energy that you have taken on during the day that no longer serves you. These releases will allow you to enjoy the benefits of good rest.
This class includes scripture, breath of fire to detox the mind and body, and a flow to soothe the nervous system and allow you to find rest in your body this evening.
Suggested props: bolster or blankets, yoga blocks or something of equal size
