I had a sweet group of yogis at Wilmington Yoga Center yesterday. They were especially good at practicing pratyahara, internal focus, given the stimulation of the ongoing expansion at WYC. The space, already fantastic, will soon be even better with the addition of a third studio. I love teaching there, as it’s like Bizarro Carrboro, with the studio located over the co-op, perfect for snacks post-practice.
As I promised my students, here’s a list to what we did with notes about where to find it. The YogaVibes links will take you directly to the right place; there’s also a full range of my yoga for athletes classes there.
