Step Into Yoga: The Mind-Body Path to Healing and Happiness

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. A graduate of the Deep Yoga School of Healing Arts, she is certified as a teacher by the Yoga Alliance. You can pay the day of the workshop, but pre-registration required: call the Center at (858) 459-8301 or call Anne Marie, who can also answer your questions, at (858) 456-5205.  Below is Shiva at Sunset meditating on the Ganges in Rishikesh, India, Yoga’s spiritual home.

Yoga masters the breath to master the mind.
