    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.

    Mindfully Managing Uncertainty

    12:00pm to 1:00pm

    Location: 

    Online

    With Zeenat Potia

    If there’s one thing we know to be true, it’s that life is never as certain as we’d like it to be. And while we can typically handle uncertainty in small doses, exceptionally disruptive events may leave us feeling isolated, anxious, and overwhelmed. We will examine how to regulate fast-moving streams of information from the outside: news reports, work demands, interactions with others – as well as equally fast-moving streams of information from within: thoughts, feelings, worries, and hopes. In doing so, we will establish an attitude of ease and stability,...
