Yoga Comes to ICC
Monday, Feb 08, 16 by
In September we started a weekly Yoga program at ICC for residents and staff. The class is taught by staff Art Therapist, Robin O’Hare, who traveled to Costa Rica over the summer with Sacred Studio Brooklyn ( http://sacredbrooklyn.com/ ) to become a certified instructor in Vinyasa Flow Yoga. Class is offered once a week and is open to all levels of experience. Robin focuses on breath awareness, improved posture, balance, stretching, the ability to relax and have fun. Each class begins with an intention or theme and participants are encouraged to listen to their bodies and make their own choices every step of the way. Space is created at the end of class for silent meditation or extended savasana. Participants have reported both physical and mental benefits from this weekly practice.
