The Yoga Detour Method with Cecily Milne

Experience the Detour method first hand in this two-hour signature class with Cecily: move through a head-to-toe mobility session which explores strength and control through full range of motion before delving into more global positions including yoga postures, squat variations and locomotion patterns. Witness the effects of layering contemporary movement research into a classical yoga practice to produce a renewed appreciation for all that is possible both on and off the mat.

All levels are welcome.
$45 ($40 before July 1)
