Resources for Yoga Practice

Free Yoga Practice Videos courtesy of Yoga Journal – I filmed these four practices as a part of a program I did with Yoga Journal called “Boost Your Willpower.” You will need to sign up for the free program by giving them your email address, but you will get access to the videos (2 active flow practices, a restorative practice, and a gentle breath-based flow practice) as well as four guided audio meditations. You can access one of the videos without signing up here.

My book Yoga for Pain Relief includes accessible sequences of breathing stretches, simple breath-based flows, and breathing exercises/meditations.
