Hatha Yoga
Feel better, stronger, and relieve stress as you experience the mind/body
connection in this class. Explore the benefits of ASANA (yoga postures) to gently stretch and strengthen the body. Breathing techniques quietly relax the mind and emotions and take you into a deeper level of consciousness. You will become more aware of patterns that facilitate a healthy spine and a more relaxed and easeful body, mind, and spirit.
Ages 15+; 6 weeks.
