This class will meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00. The classes consist of a 5 week series and the fee is $150 for all sessions. Emily Robinson, certified yoga instructor, will be our facilitator.
The main objectives are to help participants feel comfortable in their bodies, to learn self-regulation skills, and to improve their ability to direct attention away from ruminative thought processes.
No experience necessary.
We strive to make the classes accessible to everybody regardless of physical ability.
Participants will practice:
- Diaphragmatic breathing
- Awareness of sensations
- Easy movements that induce peacefulness
Participants will not have to talk to other participants, making this class more comfortable for those individuals who find it difficult to be in groups.
Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat.
