Let National Yoga Awareness Month inspire you to roll out the mat. Westside Yoga owner Amber Barry shares the health benefits behind one of her favorite poses, the Crescent. “This variation on Warrior I is excellent for strengthening the legs and opening the shoulders. A focused gaze (drishti) can help reduce stress and quiet the mind. Keep the eyes steady, and breathe through the nose as you hold the pose for 10-20 full breaths.” Learn more about the benefits of yoga and add a new routine to your practice with a visit to her studio.
