“You are as young as your spine is flexible.”

This ten-minute yoga session offers simple stretches meant to be done every day or a few times a week. This kind of stretching will lead to deeper, fuller breaths, which will lead to greater ease in the mind/body and greater vibrancy in life. If you know someone who could use a free video like this, pass it on!

I originally made this video for my octagenarian grandmother, but so many people can benefit from opening up the body’s bigger joints and freeing up space in the body that I didn’t want to keep it private.

May happiness flood to you in every moment.

In peace,

Leigha
