What is Lullaby Yoga?
In Lullaby Yoga, Johanna gently guides you through a series of deeply relaxing poses while singing and playing soothing songs and chants. Her class uses principles from restorative yoga, therapeutic yoga, yoga nidra, and subtle body and breath work. The music provides a luxurious, peaceful space for the mind to rest while the body relaxes, rebalances, and restores itself. Read more here
