Restore: Deep Breath, Deep Peace

The following is a restorative yoga sequence designed during the Yapana Being: Restorative Yoga Training with Leeann Carey. It includes progressively quieter backward-bending poses to relax the body while expanding the front of the body and chest for access to a deeper breath.

All postures can be found in Leeann's book, The Yapana Way.
