On March 8, we celebrate the beautiful, intelligent, strong, passionate and inspiring women in our lives by recognizing International Women’s Day! While we should always strive to celebrate this magnificent gender – whether you are a woman or a man – this is truly the time of the year that we should pay a little extra attention.
With this in mind, “Healing Yoga” host Deborah Devine has created a special, International Women’s Day webisode!
“Let yoga be your secret weapon for maintaining your feminine wellbeing,” says Devine. “Celebrate International Women’s Day with these Healing Yoga tips that help optimize breast health, strengthen the lower body and support the pelvic organs.”
