Tuesdays 7:30 - 8:30pm
Four Week Session - March 28 - April 25
As we celebrate springtime and daylight increases we will meet in front of the big window for this Serenity Hatha Yoga class four weeks series.
We will not have a class limit for this session but ask that you make a commitment to 90% of the four classes to receive optimal benefits.
We will continue to celebrate mindful Hatha Yoga with attention to breath, movement and deep relaxation including Yoga Nidra for stress reduction.
"These four components are complementary with the outcome of: physical and mental fitness, management of emotions and stress, mind-body awareness, mindfulness and spirituality." Harvard Medical School Special Report - Introduction to Yoga
We will add a new posture each week to "cultivate" our body awareness and strength building and resilience for springtime activities.
We will include a special focus on the ancient study of yoga and it's evidenced based connection to Well Being in mind, body and soul.
Class One: Imagine Well Being
Class Two: Limbs of Yoga
Class Three: Yoga, Values and Ethics
Class Four: Yoga & Mindful Spirituality
There is no charge for this class...we ask that you share intentional acts of service as a way to "pay it forward". This is how the world is changed one person and community at a time!
