Kirsten Adorian will facilitate a weekly workshop in yoga and meditation.
The class starts with 15 minutes of yoga poses or Asana, common in yoga classes. During the yoga portion, we will explore the fundamental aspects of it, try modifications, discuss what parts of the body it typically affects, and talk about its intended Somatic effect.
We will then follow with 15 minutes of simple, breath-centered meditation, starting with simple stretches to prepare the body and then sitting for 15 minutes of guided meditation.
This Yoga and Meditation class is great for folks new to this. With ongoing practice, the class will focus on making yoga and meditation less intimidating and more accessible to a variety of bodies.
