Geca does yoga ep8

This isn’t much of my experience since I attended absolute yoga today which mainly follows the same sequence each time. 

Update on the meditation balms:

I asked my teacher about it and she said it helps in meditation. I took a photo of the balm. Luckily this one is available in the Philippines!


Now for today’s pose:

Fish pose/ matsyasana


In this pose you extend your legs outward, flex your toes, raise your chest up and try to reach the crown of your head on the mat.
