    The seed of every habit is a single, tiny decision. Atomic habits are regular practices or routines that are not only small and easy to do, but also the source of incredible power, a component of the system of compound growth. Based on the #1 NYT bestseller by one of the world’s leading experts on habit formation, James Clear, this webinar offers dynamic, effective, and immediate ways to foster new positive habits or mitigate those ‘not so great’ habits that aren’t serving you.

Because this practice blends movement in the body with the breath, it is an ideal extension of mindfulness practice.

    No previous knowledge of yoga is necessary. This class does not require special clothing or equipment.

In doing so, we will establish an attitude of ease and stability,...
