    Mindful Movement: Yoga for the Office

    Repeats every week every Monday until Mon Dec 19 2022 .
    9:00am to 9:30am

    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.
