Instructor: Claire Brees

Take a break and relax with yogi and artist Claire Brees! During these 60-minute meetings we'll check in with our bodies, taking time to focus and center our breathing while doing simple yet effective stretches. All of these movements can be done from your desk chair, with some modifications if you would like to stand. Sessions end with guided meditations to relax and restore, bringing a calm focus for the rest of your day. This practice is suitable for participants of all physical abilities.

Workshops are taught online through Zoom and Canvas. Students will need a computer or smart phone with webcam and microphone, internet and web streaming capacity, and the Zoom application installed to their device. 

Materials needed:

a firm (non-upholstered) chair, preferably with no arms. that's it! (possible use of pillow and other items the student is likely to have at home).
