The powerful teachings of yoga can be deeply supportive to all of us at this stressful time. We hope you will continue with a daily yoga practice, or take this opportunity to start practicing at home. Inversions and restorative poses are both important, as they support the immune system and quiet the nervous system. As we face this enormous challenge, may we all remain calm, mindful, compassionate and wise.

Flowing through our Obstacles: Accessing Fluidity and Lightness through Yoga
An Online Workshop with Karen Allgire
Saturday, June 27, 9:30 am – 12:00 pm Central Time, $35
Sponsored by The Yoga Center of Lawrence

Yoga gives us the tools to work skillfully and joyfully through all circumstances of life. In this workshop, we will work with the water element to promote fluidity and vitality, the air element to nurture mobility and lightness, and the space element to enhance adaptability and open mindedness. Working from the perspective of the elements can provide a fresh experience of familiar postures. This mixed level workshop is open to all levels of practitioners.
