    Mindful Movement: Yoga for the Office

    Repeats every week every Monday until Mon May 23 2022 except Mon Oct 11 2021, Mon Dec 27 2021, Mon Feb 21 2022, Mon Apr 18 2022.

    Location: 

    Online

    As every office worker knows, sitting for long periods can result in stiffness and discomfort. The gentle stretches and postures taught in this program are designed to increase flexibility at the joints – thereby improving one's range of motion – and also aid in relaxing the hips and lower portions of the body to increase one's ability to sit with ease. Because this practice blends movement in the body with the breath, it is an ideal extension of mindfulness practice.

    No previous knowledge of yoga is necessary. This class does not require special clothing or equipment.
