    Mindful Movement: Yoga for the Office

    Repeats every week every Friday until Fri Dec 16 2022 .
    12:00pm to 12:30pm

    Location:

    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.

This class does not require special clothing or equipment.
