Use Yoga to Reduce Stress & Achieve Your New Year’s Intention! @ Community Acupuncture of Mount Airy
Jan 22 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

The New Year is a powerful time for transformation.

But messages telling you what you “should” be doing can be impractical, keeping you from following through on well-intended goals.  Yoga offers a practical set of tools for creating sustainable intention, habits and behaviors that yield the lasting results you desire.  Reduce stress and achieve your goals.   Caution: side effects may include greater health, improved relationships and positive perceptions of work.

• Reinforce commitment to habits that align with and support your intention for the New Year and beyond.

• Explore the impact of clear intention, attitude, posture and breathing.

• Learn how to easily integrate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of Yoga philosophy into your daily life.

• Design a realistic personalized Yoga practice to support your intentions and reduce your stress.

Great as a gift to yourself or a loved one!

Facilitated by Maureen Cannon, M.Ed., C-IAYT, E-RYT 200 Maureen offers a thoughtful authentic approach to supporting students with discovering life-changing healthy habits that easily integrate into their daily lives.  Positively affecting relationships, nutrition and work. Skilled at using tools that have been adapted for today’s Western society from traditional Yoga philosophy and practices.  Maureen has completed extensive training in Yoga philosophy and practice.  Maureen has been studying and teaching Yoga for 15 years and holds a Masters of Education, International Association of Yoga Therapy Certification and Yoga Alliance Teacher Certification.
