Weekly Yoga – Lockdown Activity | Virtual
These classes will run for 4 weeks and have been designed for first responders and their families to encourage an uplifted and calm feeling in the body and in the mind. You can attend one class or all four, just register for the weeks you would like to attend. These classes are open to all fitness and flexibility levels, and children are more than welcome to join in. Classes will generally involve:
- 5 minutes meditation
- 10 – 15 minutes range of motion
- Flowing movement and breath
- Relaxation practice
The focus of the class is to move mindfully with your breath, relieve muscle tension, improve range of movement, and calm the nervous system. The experienced yoga instructor will support participants in learning yoga postures that are simple, slow, and designed to flow at a pace that is easy to follow.
An instructor from Frontline Yoga will be taking the class.
