In these scary times when many cities and states are still experiencing life in quarantine, we can feel really far from our friends and loved ones. For many, taking a yoga class right now just isn’t an option, whether it be because of government COVID-19 restrictions or for personal comfort. Missing out on that daily or even weekly human interaction can take a toll on us and add to the feelings of anxiety and stress that came along with 2020.
