Sitting with Trust

Sitting with Trust

In the journey of yoga when you first experience a pose it's all about the physical shape and quickly your body tells you how it is working. You feel it. As you revisit a pose over time much more is revealed. Chair pose is like that. It begins with your feet together, knees together and hands on...
