This workshop Trio is just in time for Summer! Align, define and refine your body feet-to-torso-to-face. We will apply Pilates Principles to the YBR work to connect to the Powerhouse. Honestly, can we have stiff feet and a flexible body and face? Not really… The health, alignment and tone of our feet and arches determines much about the general health and condition of our bodies and the lift of the upper body and face. You will go home with the Yamuna Feet-to-Face gear and the Core Body Knowledge™ for self care to maximize phenomenal results. Take one, two or all three. Contact us with questions and discounts.

Your Purchase is good for 6 months and includes one audit to repeat the class(es)!
