Week 2 3/11: Mindful Movement, presented by Catie Payne, RecWell – Self-care looks different for every single person. Self-care does not need to be extravagant, grandiose, or expensive; it can simply be stepping back for a moment to breathe. In this session, you will learn techniques to integrate mindfulness into your day; incorporating breathing techniques and seated yoga postures that can be done at your desk in the office or at home. All postures will offer variations to support a wide range of abilities and age, as Catie Payne (she/her) is a yoga instructor who has a passion for creating opportunities for yoga to be accessible and inclusive for anyone. There is power in taking time for yourself and without a doubt, you deserve that time. Hope you will join us!
