9:00 am – 11:30 am

Reflections Yoga
227 East 24th Street
New York, NY
Cost: $40

“In this backbending class we will explore the ways that you work internally to honor your life and your yoga, tracking and identifying how you DON’T do those things, and then taking the steps to change, through a focus on pleasure. Oh-la-la!

Join Erica and assistant Leslie Pearlman for a very special morning. There will be ceremony, chanting, meditation, and 2 hours of deep asana.

*note–Forrest Yoga teachers-in-training will be present in this class, so there may be some rowdiness and fun. 🙂 There will be no “call and response” during class, however.”

*Sign up early, because, well, these things tend to sell out!
