This restorative class with Jessica Bahr starts on the back with gentle movements to wake up the spine and open up the backs of the legs. Practice Supta Padangusthasana (reclined hand to big toe pose using the strap) followed by twisted root to find mobility in the spine and hips.  Then exhale into supported child's pose turning your back to the world while releasing tension in the  lower back, ankles, feet and calves.

Leave this class feeling fully refreshed!
