This Wednesday series is intended to bring Therapeutic Yoga into the lives of everyone in our community, one useful step and insight at a time on numerous subjects. We will approach a new topic every other week, aiming to deepen our understanding and impart a practical grasp of various issues, all of which have relevance to improved health under the umbrella of Yoga Therapy. Each class will address specific objectives within an introductory framework on that subject; several of these subjects are explored in more depth during our one-day workshops, held on alternate Wednesdays. Workshop's will include theory and practical exercises related to the given topic, as well as group activities.
Discourses are 1.5 hours. Please check the individual discourses for starting times
Workshop hours are 12:30-15:30 and 17:00-20:00

Theoretical knowledge is combined with short exercises that provide an opportunity to expand the awareness.
