Core + Restore
with
Heather Gunn-Rivera
This class will help you access your deepest core muscles through mindful breathing and restorative stretches. As performers we know the value of a supported breath, but the breath can only be properly supported with a strong core. The ability to call upon all aspects of our core helps us stand strong, support properly, and move efficiently.
   
Be ready to move with Heather as she guides us through this restorative session.
