    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.

    Mindfulness Practices for Burnout Relief

    12:00pm to 1:00pm

    Location: 

    Online

    The literal definition of “burnout” is this: “The reduction of a fuel or substance to nothing, through use or combustion.” However, as every individual knows, burnout is not just a scientific phenomenon—it’s what happens when inner resources become depleted, and no spark is left to start them up again.
