Mindful Movement and Medical Literacy with Samantha Williams
April 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Gentle exercise and calming mindfulness practices can come together for an approach to wellness that addresses the physical body and the mind. Mindful Movement and Medical Literacy introduces participants to Yoga, Tai Chi, and Mindfulness while offering a framework for finding reliable health information online.
The workshop includes a discussion as well as opportunities to move, although participants are welcome to simply observe the exercises if they would rather not participate. The focus is on restoring range of motion, muscle strengthening, and encouraging lymph drainage while incorporating mindfulness practice into your exercise routine. All levels are welcome.
