They help to combat stress, boost energy and maintain strength and flexibility.

    Thank you for these shorter ‘express’ classes Rod. As a new member I am really enjoying exploring all the content and variety of classes available on Yoga Selection but it is just wonderful to have access to a short sequence that can fit into a busy morning!
