    Mindful Movement: Yoga for the Office

    Repeats every week every Monday until Mon Dec 20 2021 except Mon Oct 11 2021.
    10:00am to 11:00am

    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.
