Presented by Amrit Michelle Singh, LMSW, RYT 500

Many of us have been spending more time in our chairs and in our homes, and because of it, our physical health may be suffering. In this 1-hour session, we will discuss the benefits of a regular yoga practice, and spend some time learning how we can practice yoga and stretching while we are seated, or near a chair/desk. No yoga mat needed...just yourself!
