Yoga & The Examen is an hour long reflection with slow, gentle meditative movements. While moving with our breath, we will focus on gratitude, our emotions and what we hope to cultivate in our future.  Bring your own mat if you have one – if not, we have a few extras to share. There are also chairs available for those who want to join in the Ignatian Examen without any physical movement. For those not joining in the movement – feel free to bring a journal if that is your preference.  This yoga practice is based on the Jesuit Examen – to learn more, visit this website.

 

 

 

Yoga for Recovery is offered to anyone!  People in recovery from a mental or physical illness or trauma will find a real benefit in the physical practice that incorporates mental health and the spiritual aspects of yoga.  This gentle yoga flow will incorporate a typical all-levels class with social elements as well which are so important to living a full life in recovery.
