Yoga Groove was created by Karen Russell as a conscious tone and fit barre class which incorporates the yoga philosophy, precise classic barre movements, and choreographed dance sequences. Join Karen as she takes you away from the barre to experience the Yoga Groove workshop as you combine the philosophy of yoga within several sacred dances to inspire you. Since the beginning of time there was the dance!
