In an effort to keep our congregation healthy and engaged, the Avis Foundation will begin a new series of classes on Sunday evenings at 6:30 PM. The classes will be held on Sundays- 10/4,10/11,10/18 and 10/25.Lisa Sack, Certified Clinical Somatic Exercise Instructor & Viniyoga Therapist will lead the classes.Class description:Recurring injuries and chronic pain are often related to the way we stand, sit and move our bodies. The more we repeat these movements, the more deeply ingrained they become, leading to tension and discomfort.In these classes you’ll learn to undo patterns of muscular contraction using somatic exercises – small and focused movements done very slowly and mindfully with soft and easy breath. Tension will be released from the body, breath and mind, resulting in a sense of balance, ease and spaciousness.All levels are welcome to attend.Each person should have available:A chairA thin pillowA blanketPlease RSVP to BRYN BIREN at MsBunny7@aol.com if you will be attending. There is NO FEE for these sessions.You will receive the link before the first class
