Basic Yoga Standing Stretch Series

This is a basic standing series with a warm-up, breathing, stretches, balance, and a few standing poses. A good series to do if you have been sitting all day or in conjunction with other videos we’ll be posting to make a complete workout. While this is basic, it still has challenging elements, especially if you have not done yoga for a while. So, as always, do what feels good to you!
