The Power of Unity with Abhijata Iyengar - Day 7

Practice Level: 
Yoga Style: 

On this final day of the online intensive with Abhijata, we began the practice with Pranayama - both seated and supine. Abhijata introduced Pranayama as a practice of sensitivity. Then we practiced several poses, each one with support as Abhijata encouraged us to recognize props as tools to help us realize yoga as a way of life.
