Morning Warm-Ups

This page is devoted solely to Morning Warm-Ups. For other time periods, please see the Schedule Overview page.

Many people get together to warm up from 9 to 9:45 in small groups without any facilitation, and we encourage that. This is not a “class” period. But if you think you might benefit from some structure, you’ll find three things below:
