In this class, we will explore basic poses to strengthen and balance the body, therapeutic poses to restore the body, guided deep relaxation and visualization techniques to manage injuries and trauma, breathing techniques to calm and invigorate the body, manage mood, improve sleep patterns, reduce stress, and meditation to focus and discipline the mind.
We are proud to be working with Kula for Karma to offer free yoga for veterans at the Ridgewood YMCA. Yoga is an ancient practice now used by soldiers and athletes to enhance focus and flexibility – and is often used as a complement to medical treatment for those suffering with post-traumatic stress (PTS).
No previous experience with yoga is necessary. Modifications of poses are taught for any participants with specific physical challenges.
