Yoga Workshop: Meditation and Coloring!
Saturday, March 24
$20 members/$40 non-members
Class will meet in the SE Yoga Studio
Coloring isn’t just for kids anymore! Adults all over the world are enjoying this favorite childhood pastime, but now with an eye toward reducing stress and inviting more joy into their lives. Practicing yoga and meditation can improve health, reduce stress, and offer much needed balance to the hustle and bustle of daily life, but for some, meditation can be intimidating. Common concerns include: difficulty sitting still, an overactive mind, or too many distractions. Adding a single, focused, creative task like coloring can enhance one’s ability to sit mindfully, and as a result, can improve our capability to handle stress. Join instructor, Deb Hackman as she offers guided meditation, a few seated yoga poses, and coloring. All supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring your own if you are already a coloring aficionado!
