June 8, 1-4 p.m., La Jolla Community Center, 6811 La Jolla Blvd., La Jolla
My next Yoga Workshop is coming up soon; here’s the announcement from the La Jolla Community Center where I teach every Thursday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 11:30 a.m..
Yoga and its sister science, Ayurveda, are the world’s oldest holistic system of mind-body medicine. This three-hour workshop explores how you can embody this ancient wisdom in your modern life, at any age. You’ll learn breathing practices that lower blood pressure and relieve stress; physical postures that improve flexibility, strength and balance; meditation techniques that still the busy mind—and other methods to access your deepest resources for healing and living fully in each moment. No yoga experience necessary. $25 for members of the La Jolla Community Center; $30 for non-members.
Instructor Anne Marie Welsh, Ph.D., RYT, has been teaching writing and arts-related subjects for four decades and practicing yoga for 14 years.
