September 7, 2017 @ 2:45 pm - November 2, 2017 @ 4:00 pm
This class integrates mindfulness, pranayama, and somatic awareness into a yoga sequence that emphasizes the whole person. These classes begin with a group process that allows students to check-in with the group, build community, and voice personal intentions for class. Dr. Schwartz tailors her small-sized therapeutic classes to meet the needs of the individuals present that takes an asana practice into a powerfully transformational tool that applies both on and off of the mat.
Class meets on Thursdays from 2:45-4:00pm and the 8 week series begins on Thursday, September 7th and ends on Thursday, November 2nd (no class meeting on Thursday, October 19th).
