In preparation for the holiday, this sequence is filled with shoulder, back, and heart openers to help us to release tension, get grounded, and reconnect to Source so we can be more available to the challenges, beauty, and wonder that this season brings, and to our friends and family with more compassion, centeredness, and love.
