11:00- 1:00 "Breathing Peace, Navigating Through Stress Gracefully"

Conscious regulation of the breath is the single most effective relaxation technique to flow through stress. This workshop focuses on mindful breathing practices that are calming and energizing and can even help with stress-related health problems ranging from panic attacks to digestive disorders. "Breathing Peace" is a wonderful resource for anyone who wishes to improve his or her health and vitality through conscious breathing. Take time to experience the master key to health and longevity as we use the breath to navigate through troubled times easily, gracefully and masterfully.

2- 4 pm Gentle Chair Yoga

Are you a yoga teacher who'd like to expand your teaching to benefit more students? Maybe you're interested in beginning a yoga practice and not sure where to begin? Chair yoga offers you the ability to improve your health through an amazing form of creative and adaptive exercise.

Did you know that almost all yoga poses can be modified for the chair? People with disabilities, injuries, weight challenges or inflexibility, can all benefit from yoga with a chair. The chair replaces the yoga mat and becomes an extension of your body allowing you to take advantage of yoga’s benefits, relaxing your body and mind, boosting your musculature fitness and flexibility, and improving your overall well-being.

Teachers of yoga and students alike will gain knowledge of using props to create a well balanced practice from a chair. What you learn in this workshop can be applied to mini yoga breaks at work, a long plane ride, or any time you need to balance the mind, increase blood flow and boost your energy.

What would it feel like to totally nurture and honor your body? Enjoy learning a yoga practice that is invigorating, fun, and accessible, but most of all, effective!
