What Shirley Wu said after her 4 Days of Yoga and Photography Guidance:
Optional Morning Yoga, it’s guaranteed you will recharge and transform doing kundalini yoga and meditation every morning. Even if you’ve never done a pose before.
This session is not for advanced yogis, it’s for beginners. But if you’ve been doing yoga for a while, I am a certified instructor and can inspire you more deeply with your practice.
Yoga blooms open your heart. You’ll enjoy the day more fully and get that little kid ecstasy feeling.
Yes, you get the benefit of teachings I’ve learned and practiced from saints and meditation masters in Thailand, Nepal, and India.
This is not only about learning photography and yoga, it’s a kick in the pants for your spirit that will open your world to a new you and change your life.
