Fitness Friday: Rainy Day Slow Flow Yoga

This week has been nothing but rain for the Philadelphia area and all I want to do is get on my mat and move ever so slowly. This flow is meant to do just that.  Take your time with it, find the slow dance, the pauses in between each transition and the space for your own creativity with each asana (pose).
