Yoga for Daily Living (8-Week Series)
April 29, 2021 at 10:00 am
with Cheryl Fenner Brown, C-IAYT, E-RYT 500
This virtual program will run on Thursdays, April 29th through June 10th, from 10:00 a.m. until 11:15 a.m.
Yoga is so much more than exercise—it is a lifestyle that enables you to greet daily challenges with greater ease and calm that teaches you how to relate to yourself and others in a kinder, more compassionate way. Join integrative yoga therapist Cheryl Fenner Brown for this series and explore how yoga can help with the various ‘ailments’ of daily living we all face from time to time. Learn strategies for dealing with stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression, digestive disturbance, fatigue, low immunity, osteoporosis, and back pain. You will learn a combination of movement, breathing techniques, intention, mudra (gesture), mindfulness, sound practices, visualization, and guided meditation.
Please wear comfortable clothing and have a yoga mat, two 4” yoga blocks, an 8’ yoga strap, a blanket, and a pillow.
