June wrap-up: Chinstand!

Posted

Many of you know that every month I have a “challenge pose” that we dissect in my classes. Mirroring the way we all figure out something new, I started using this format to give us all time to practice and really learn it rather than give you one shot then move on. June’s Challenge Pose […]

The Authentic Life
