How many of us don’t listen to our body’s wisdom sometimes? We go go go until one day we're wondering, “Why am I hurting all over and feeling bad?” One of the countless benefits of yoga is that it teaches us how to slow down our minds and pay more attention to our bodies and our hearts. There’s a wealth of information in there, yet most of us don’t pay attention. When we practice yoga, we get to learn more about ourselves and those internal signals.
This a gentle beginner’s class with some variations for different levels of practitioners. Non-English speaking students are welcomed since the postures will be demonstrated so students can follow along.
You will learn some yoga postures (asanas) and mindfulness tools to stay more focused, more calm, and build more resilience and courage to navigate whatever life events you encounter.
