Morning Yoga Basics: July

We maybe in the middle of a heat wave, but my early birds were with me as we saluted the sun on a hot and hazy morning. Today’s class was framed with the idea of listening: listening to the outdoor sounds on an urban college campus (construction, traffic, people walking and talking, birds, bugs and the breeze) and moving beyond the external sounds to the internal dialog between body and mind.  Hefty concept for 7:30am, but these guys and gals are champs!
