Bear Creek Nature Center Public Programs PSA- JULY 2014‏

We will flow with our breath from posture to posture beginning with centering and warm-up, a standing flowing sequence to tone and strengthen followed by seated postures, and ending with deep relaxation. No experience necessary – gentle enough for beginners with variations for those who are more advanced. With an attitude of playful exploration, we will build more awareness, strength, and flexibility in our bodies and our minds. (drop-ins welcome, $5)
