This class is a great add-on to any class you take to cool down or a fantastic way to start every day. Having a rest day? This is a perfect way to move your body while breathing and relaxing. We are focusing on breath, concentrated, slow movements, and stretching. So roll out your mat and keep that body moving with Jen.

The goal is to keep moving the entire time.
