Hidden Gems - August 2020

Since the launch of Yoginora.com almost 2 years ago, there has been a new yoga video, guided meditation, or recipe every week.  Every week for almost 2 years, you have had classes in studios, in living rooms, at the beach, in the park, or on a scenic ocean view cliff.  

There are some extraordinary hidden gems that aren’t getting the attention they deserve.  For the month of August, we will rediscover two videos a week, of these hidden gems that we think you would love to be re-introduced to. 

Week 1

Stay tuned for more hidden gems this month!
