Join Cecily for an intelligently-designed full-body wake up! This practice moves joint-by-joint at a slow, mindful pace and progressively wakes up your connection to your entire body, from head to toe. An excellent highlight is the creative "teacup drill" work that Cecily guides us through toward the end.

Enjoy this slow, intentional practice that will prepare you well for whatever is to come in your day!

This practice utilizes 1 yoga block and 1 optional small ball (a massage ball or tennis ball would work great).
