Yoga as Medicine Workshops with Samara Anderson.   Upcoming May 20 - Hip Complex; Opening Inner and Outer Hips/Adductors and AbductorsSaturday, Albany Studio.  2-4PM.   This upcoming series will focus on the various mindful tools that can tap into the body’s own medicine cabinet to heal both the body and the mind through awareness.  Each workshop is focused on mindful tools students can use to heal specific parts of their body through Pranayama, Breath Awareness, Deep Breathing, combined with Focused Attention on specific parts of the body during the Yoga practice.
