Yoga in Action
Wednesday, Aug 17
This three-hour introductory workshop provides a taste of the ‘Yoga in Action’ course which combines yoga postures, mindfulness techniques and experiential exercises with practical tools for communicating, organizing and collaborating in order to help participants develop:
• more direction and focus in their life
• greater connection
• better health and resilience to stress
• greater ability to lead change.
This workshop is not only for yogis. No previous experience of yoga is required to take part. If you’ve never tried yoga, this is a great way to discover new practices to support your life and work. If you already practice yoga, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of how to integrate insights from yoga into your daily life.
