Fridays!, July 8 through August 12, 2022, 10 - 10:50 AM EDT Except 7/15!
Take some time out of your day for a brief resilience break where we will use breath and movement to explore common emotions that impact our resilience. Each session will explore a different emotion and breathing or movement technique to support letting go and re-stabilization in our minds and bodies.
Connecting with our body through gentle movement, breath practice, and reflection is a powerful way to build internal resilience to be able to handle any challenges each day brings.
