New Path Yoga for Previously Incarcerated Women

 

 

Thursdays 10:30am – 12:00pm

8 Week Series 

April 26th – June 14th 

 

A supportive introductory yoga class for previously incarcerated women. This class will provide a safe supportive environment, where women can continue to learn about yoga, reflect on their lives, develop a personal practice and encourage one another. Classes will include a check-in, grounding and centering, asana, pranayama, guided relaxation, yoga philosophy and some poetry. I take a trauma-informed approach to teaching yoga, that emphasizes body awareness and sensing, breathing, and nervous system regulation.
