One of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves and others is the gift of happiness and joy. In this practice we will move through various yoga postures and breath exercises that soften our edges and cultivate an uplifting sense of playfulness. By focusing our attention on joy, we can create a powerful energy that will saturate our own beings and spread to those around us. Through this yoga practice, we will open our eyes to how much abundance, happiness, and joy lies in even the simplest moments. All levels welcome.
