Breathe Easy: Yoga for Health and Wellness

Tue • 4/02-5/07 • 10-11am • Meets on Tuesday mornings for 6 weeks

In this chair-assisted yoga class, learn to align gentle movements with your breath, aiding flexibility, balance, stress relief and relaxation. Participants will become familiar with poses and simple stretches that can be incorporated into daily life. The course includes breathing and meditation techniques that support all areas of the body and contribute to a better night’s sleep. All yoga equipment will be provided. Taught by Jennifer Leavy, Yoga Therapist.

Exploring Relaxation: An Introduction to Guided Meditation

Tue • 4/02-4/23 • 11:30-12:30pm • Meets on Tuesday mornings for 4 weeks

Have you heard about the benefits of meditation (better sleep, improved health, less stress) but don’t know how to start? Learn to weave meditation and relaxation into your daily life. In each session, do a brief warmup stretch, settle into a comfortable position (seated or reclined), and practice a meditation technique with the instructor’s guidance. Then have some time at the end to talk about your experience. Leave with instructions for guided meditations. Taught by Jennifer Leavy, Yoga Therapist. Yoga and meditation has great physical and psychological benefits.

Per the Mayo Clinic, research suggests that meditation may help people manage symptoms of conditions such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Chronic pain
  • Depression
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Sleep problems
  • Tension headaches

The course will be held at Pose by Pose Yoga® located at 17761 Hunting Bow Circle,  Lutz, FL 33558  (Located in the Ballantrae Professional Center).
