Mindful Movement: Yoga for the Office

11:30am to 12:00pm

Location: 

114 Mt. Auburn St. Conference Room 406, Cambridge, MA

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.
