Five Yoga Breaths & Gentle Yoga: Gateway to Relaxation, Resilience & Repose (Online)

As we navigate through the challenges of the pandemic, we need more tools to help find equanimity, patience and inner repose. In yoga, breath is the key: a guiding intelligence that restores the flow of life force within the body. In this online workshop, we will learn five yogic breaths, and how they can be used to relieve anxiety, calm and balance the nervous system, restore energy and vitality and soothe the spirit. We will then apply these breaths while practicing some gentle yoga postures. Also included are breathing techniques that will assist you in subduing moments of stress, and also, aiding in the defeat of insomnia.
