This weekend: clear your mind, strengthen your body, and relax in the hot springs - there’s still space in the upcoming HEART OF WINTER YOGA RETREAT at Mothershop Yoga Lounge in Truth or Consequences!
Four 90-minute sessions (combining hatha-flow and restorative-yin) will occur over the course of three days (February 10-12). Yoga instructor Edie Tsong of the Santa Fe Community Yoga Center teaches thoughtfully sequenced classes with an attention to alignment and well-being.

Ample props are used for support, and the weekend’s practice will also include poetry, guided meditation, and pranayama. Annette Groenfeldt will provide live vocalizations and tambora for Saturday’s Yin class. Snacks are also included to keep your energy flowing.
