May 22 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 am
With Beth Lawrence, RYT 500
Please join us for a class which draws largely from Sivananda Yoga and Integral Yoga. The two schools take an integrated approach to yoga, incorporating both the mind and body into their practices. Mentally, we focus on relaxtion and work toward stilling the mind to reveal our true natures of peace and contentment. Physically, we follow a set sequence of poses to first warm up the body, and then to encourage strength and flexibility. Like many other schools of yoga, the series is the same each time to encourage a meditative quality to the physical as well as the mental component of the class. All levels welcome.

Please note that class will not be held on Monday, May 29th due to the Memorial Day Holiday. Please enjoy your holiday!

About Beth Lawrence
Beth discovered yoga in early 2002 as a mother of six month old twins. She was looking to get back into shape after their birth. In yoga, she found far more than she anticipated- an age old practice designed to help people relieve stress- both mental and physical. After a few years of regular practice, she knew she wanted to share her positive experiences with others.She has been leading yoga classes in the DC area since 2007 after completing her 200 hour yoga teacher training at Nth Degree Yoga with Martha Rosen. In 2011, she went back to earn her RYT500. Her personal practice is inspired by Integral Yoga and Sivananda Yoga, both of which incorporate body and mind into the practice.
