Healthy Breathing

Day Time Level Instructor Cost
Sat, April 14 1 pm - 4 pm All Levels Betsy $45

Learn how powerful the breath is to change our energy level, mood and many aspects of our health. We will begin with some simple anatomy.

We will practice lying down with simple props, progressing to upright functional activities and yoga poses.

Yoga for Hands & Feet

Balance & Bone Density

Day Time Level Instructor Cost

Before you get out there and go wild (you know you will!), learn how you can prevent injury and continue to garden comfortably through the entire season.
