The one-hour lesson happens all through summer on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 9 a.m. And it’s complimentary (all you have to remember is to bring your own mat and water). Then: inhale, exhale, and find your flow: Warrior 1 (virabhadrasana 1); Extended Side angle pose (utthita parsvakonasana); Chair pose (utkatasana); Boat pose (Navasana); Pigeon pose (eka pada rajakapotasana); it’s a good mix of twists, core, standing, and balance poses.
