This cd was professionally recorded at Onley Farm Studios in Onancock, VA. Pooh Johnston provides background music. Response is tremendous, with new students as well as other yoga teachers appreciating the gentle guidance provided. Each track begins with a sitting breath awareness exercise. Part A offers some reclining warmups, standing yoga mudra, half-moon, bridge, reclining twist, wind-relieving pose and relaxation. Part B moves from breath work to sitting and reclining twists, mountain, balancing knee to chest, boat, child's pose, knee down twist, and relaxation.
