About This Class

In this class, I'll show you a few easy techniques I've picked up from Dance and Yoga for relieving tension in the body. The goal is to promote relaxation. I specifically designed this sequence so that it can be done easily at home or at the office. We tend to store stress mostly in our head, neck, shoulders and back so we will target these areas. This is a sequence you can come back to again and again when you're feeling stressed out. You could also use it to start and/or end your day with the intention of keeping calmness with you always.. even in difficult situations. 

I think you will find these simple stretches and exercises invaluable as part of your daily (or weekly) self-care routine. Enjoy.
