This is an in person workshop only. We'll start each class with a short talk and Q&A so you'll be sure to get your questions answered. Then we'll practice some yoga, to give you an experiential understanding of what the lecture was about. We'll end with rest and meditation.
COVID Precautions: This is an in person workshop only, with a set cohort of students. Windows will be open for good airflow and masks are not required for vaccinated individuals. While practicing we will follow the 3 foot spacing guidelines.
To join this class, you'll need to provide your own yoga mat. You may use our yoga blocks, as long as you are willing to spray them down with alcohol sanitizer at the end of class. If you want to use a bolster, bring two clean pillow cases to cover it.
