Topic: Reducing Stress with Yoga and Mindfulness

Rose combines traditional yoga with Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) techniques to understand the relationship between breath, movement, and interception (inner awareness). Observing how these come together in practice can influence the Autonomic Nervous System and reduce stress for better physical and mental health. This 90-minute class offers meditation, breathing and movement practices that can affect neuroplastic and behavioral changes over time, and provide tools and strategies that allow individuals to have greater control over their responses to the challenges and struggles of life.
