Deep breathing and gentle stretching greatly improve the body’s ability to relax. Join us for an end-of-the-week practice focused on posture, strategic breathing techniques (e.g., abdomino-diaphragmatic or “belly” breathing), and a blend of stretching techniques, including modified yoga poses. We gently stretch from either a standing or seated position (no floor work). The final component of this practice is a brief visual meditation and individual relaxation/meditation. Limited enrollment.
