Yoga

JennyJoin Old First elder and yoga instructor Jenny Burrill for slow yoga at high noon every Wednesday from 12 noon to 1:15pm at Old First. It’s informal, fun and everyone is invited to drop in (no reservations or yoga experience needed).

The method: “slow yoga,” which focuses on alignment and breath. Jenny feels this is the best way to get in touch with your body; when you align your body, you also align your mind. Slow yoga involves both stretch and strengthening; you’re balancing the skeletal muscles with a range of motion. Meditation is not as complicated as it sometimes sounds; it’s simply a state where the mind relaxes; it doesn’t actually turn off or shut off, but it learns how to relax. A true mind/body benefit in your busy, distracted life: slowing down and listening to your breath, transporting yourself into a meditative state of mind. It’s a very simple human need.
