Based on an article by Viniyoga therapist Olga Kabel, creator of Sequence Wiz, this workshop will focus on 20 “nutrient-dense” poses that give us maximum benefits with minimum risk.

These poses bring benefits to multiple parts of the body, adapt easily to fit the needs of the practitioner and can be easily modified to change their area of effect.
