The Wrap
Adriana Christian.png Today’s edition by:
From the editor
I started yoga classes in college and have loved it every since. During the pandemic, I did yoga almost daily during my lunch breaks as a stress reliever. Unfortunately, I really haven’t practiced yoga in about a year — life happens — until recently. I’m slowly getting back into my workout routine and I eventually want to check out puppy yoga with Mobile Om, and the Pints + Poses class at Black Laboratory Brewery.
