From The Heart

Like the breath and the intention, my Manduka is essential to my practice. I wouldn’t want to practice on anything else, they are simply the best!

Description/Bio

Esther has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. She began learning about yoga as a way to continue running. She feels that yoga and running compliment each other – yoga opens up muscles and joints while running practices breathing and meditation.. Esther was a teacher in the public schools for over 30 years. At 68, she is retired from the academic classroom and now concentrates on yoga instruction and being a massage therapist. She finds these work well together when individualizing for her students.
