It was almost exactly one year ago that Baxter came to lead a workshop for Sun & Moon, but due to precaution for the emerging COVID-19 pandemic, only a small group of teacher trainees got to study with him. This time, Baxter will be back, live-streaming, to share four rich two-hour sessions for the entire Sun & Moon family to continue to support your health and well-being as we forge ahead in our evolving new world. 

Each Session will include a 30-45 minute lecture and Q&A, followed by an asana, pranayama, and meditation practice

Preventative Yoga and Pranayama for Covid19

Saturday, 11:00a - 1:00p EST
