|Yoga in the Garden
Aug 15, 2012
5:45 - 7:00 pm
Join us to practice the ancient art of yoga in the serene surroundings of beautiful flowers, shrubs and majestic trees. We will be taking in the sights, scents and sounds of the outdoor world the way yoga is traditionally practiced (when weather does not permit we will practice indoors).
Janak is a long time practitioner of yoga and a certified hatha yoga teacher. The goal of yoga is to rejuvenate the body, relax the nervous system and quiet the thought waves of the mind. Janak will lead you through physical poses(asanas) and breathing techniques(pranyama) to attain this goal.
Janak is also a Master Gardener at the Bartlett and will incorporate poses that are especially beneficial for gardeners and non-gardeners alike.
Some benefits of yoga are:
- Relief from back pain
- Increased Flexibility
- Increased Strength
- Relief from Stress & Anxiety
- Hormone & Blood pressure regulation
- Relief from Insomnia
- And so much more
