This yoga session is for bodies of all ages, shapes, sizes, and abilities. Hatha is the perfect way to de-stress and strengthen the mind body connection. Class will include a centering meditation, breathing practice (pranayama) and a guided deep relaxation. No equipment required.
Please feel free to invite your colleagues. This is a special event offered exclusively to staff of Bronx Consortium member organizations and something we hope to continue if there is interest!
