Perfect dual practice Review by Ant0nior
There are many layers to a Sarah Powers practice and it takes many viewings/workouts to realize the depth and quality of each online session or DVD. This is no exception! The yin poses at the beginning are a wonderful way of warming up and truly increasing flexibility and strength. The yang/vinyasa part of the session is in particular a great leg workout. Highly recomend this online course! (Posted on 11/21/11)
