Does sitting for long hours leave you tired and sore? When you ‘correct’ your posture, do you stiffen your spine? If you’re ready to release the tensions that are holding you tight, then open your mind and try something new!

Taught through sitting, standing, and lying down guided-movement lessons, participants will learn to increase flexibility, decrease lower back strain, and improve effortless posture throughout daily activities.


This 6-week session will take place on Monday evenings, January 25–February 29, 2016 from 5:00-6:00 p.m. The cost is $60, and advance registration is required.
