Yoga Classes with Linda Oelschlaeger

Put the curves back! Linda's Sridaiva Bowspring classes strengthen the muscles in the back side of the body to return the natural curves to the spine. Putting the spinal curves back allows dynamic freedom of movement and helps prevent pain that comes from losing these curves through daily life and aging. Tone your glutes and walk with more bounce in your step!
