This workshop will include:

  • Easy Yoga stretches and relaxation techniques to help reduce anxiety and exhaustion
  • Comfortable breathing techniques for portable stress release
  • Simple mental attitudes to maintain your inner balance
  • Tips to handle the anxiety that comes from so many unknowns in our current world
