Exercise Resources

Momentary Yoga w/ Cocoon Yoga Lab

Like a lot of things, practice makes perfect and yoga is definitely one of those things that I have to practice often. On select Monday nights, we actually offer a FREE flow + meditation yoga class, led by cocoon yoga lab, and broadcasted through Facebook! Follow the Momentary’s Facebook page to catch the next one. 

As another yoga resource that you can do at any time, I also enjoy Yoga with Adriene on YouTube!
