Yoga for Canadians

Even if you’re NOT from Canada, you can still enjoy this practice! It’s fun, a little silly, heating and meant to put a smile on your face. Have you ever done a class called “The Great Canadian Yoga Practice” before? We didn’t think so. 

The Great Canadian Yoga Practice

Yoga for Canadians

It  doesn’t have to be all serious, all the time! With Canadian Thanksgiving coming up, I thought it would be fun to do a “Canadian theme” yoga practice. Take off your cabin socks, roll out your mat and get ready because this is a super fun, heating yoga practice for all the Canadians out there (and friends of Canadians)
