Free Day of Yoga pictures

Our D/FW Free Day of Yoga event at the Magnolia Green was fantastic! Five Brandt instructors (Cherie Schooley, Ashleigh Burns, Tripp Miller, Jamie Merritt and Sarah McClellan-Brandt) led and assisted a class of 56 people at 9 a.m. in 70-degree weather. Thanks to our photographer Paul Marsello for shooting these great photos!

Quick yoga to improve a busy day

We all know how satisfying a nice, long, hour to hour and a haf of yoga is, but some days there just isn’t the time! On days when time is tight, a little  yoga is better than none at all. Even if you can fit in five minutes of breathing and downdog practice, or a quick headstand, you’ll feel the diffrence. Here’s a quick light practice from Yoga Today to help on days when you just can’t find the time for  full hour.
