Did you know Osteoarthritis often sets into the hands first? Why? Because those are the joints we use most often! Here are a few Finger and Hand movements (aka “Yoga snacks”!) to bring in circulation and provide pain relief to your stiff joints.
Justine, you are such a powerhouse of information and experience. I’m certain I could attend this workshop annually and ALWAYS learn so many new things. I love how you weave personal experiences into your teaching – it makes the learning so rich! Love how you use humor as you teach :)”
