We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, August 20, 2021.
Taking a moment to sit and concentrate on the breath can lead to major shifts in how we feel throughout the day, and even throughout our lives. Even though it might seem counter productive, the time it takes to focus the mind and the breath increases our energy level, our peace of mind, our mental focus, and helps us to feel more rested. This class is perfect for beginners and long time mindfulness practitioners alike. We will explore all kinds of Pranayama and Meditation practices and build up our tool kit for dealing with what life brings us.
Materials for Students to use for class:
- Bolsters or towels
- Meditation pillow, or pillows and blankets
- Yoga blocks or books
- Yoga strap, belt, tie, or scarf.
- Chair if sitting on the floor is not comfortable
