Have you ever felt like you are constantly dragging or tired? Or perhaps you want a more restful sleep or top-to-toe toning?! What about better focus or a sense of calm or even steamier sex (LOL)? You have an opportunity to either dream about the aforementioned or at least think about them by attending the Keys to Success workshop on Being Present, Yoga, and Movement. In the workshop, you will be introduced to the idea of “being present” – whether it is in the midst of taking a test, sitting in class, or while eating. You will be introduced to the concept of a yoga sun salutation and learn a few yoga moves that are good for bringing awareness to the body and busting stress. You will also be introduced to movement exercises that help make you more alert and that provide a boost of energy (they might even help tone your thighs!). We will end the workshop by going through a guided meditation that will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and alive with a new sense of being.
We do not guarantee nor endorse yoga for everyone but we all know that yoga has been the subject of research over the past few decades therapeutically for mental stress, coronary heart disease, stress and stress-induced disorders, as well as decreasing anxiety. The workshop will provide you with information about a few yoga poses that can help you on your journey to healthy living. If you ever wanted to learn more about meditation, presence, or yoga, join us for a light presentation.
Tauheeda Yasin has been practicing yoga and meditation since 2010 and has found that it is especially helpful for stress reduction, body toning, and overall joyful living.
