About Beth Lawrence
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.

Stress Release and Finding Ease

Stress Release and Finding Ease

Breathe It Out; Move It Out; Talk It Out

In this program, we will focus on our mind-body connection and explore ways to manage our stress and live with more ease. Our practices will have the intention of moving tension out of our bodies. With this intention in mind, we will share our personal stories and move and engage with each other in playful ways.

 

This program is based in affirmation and looking for the good. Accordingly, our shared, safe space will encourage us to explore our own creativity, to find our own answers and ways of managing our stress.

 

Creative movement forms can happen standing and moving within a small space or from a sitting position. Movement can also happen with our videos on or off. You are encouraged to take care of yourself and only participate at your comfort level. All are welcome.


Stress Release and Finding Ease will be offered monthly on the 3rd Thursday from 5:30 – 7:00pm ET.

Participants are encouraged to drop-in for any monthly session. Limited to 12 participants.

Upcoming Dates: 

  • August 18
  • September 15
