Yoga for Healthy Living: Embracing Change and Transition
Time & Location
About the event
Amita Jain will be speaking on the last day at this 3-day seminar on Yoga for Healthy Living, hosted by the Smithsonian Associates and presented by Linda Lang.
Tickets: $60 (Smithsonian Members), $70 (Non-Members)
Therapeutic yoga provides a particular lens through which we can see the world and ourselves, offering a variety of techniques to increase our awareness of challenges with a healthy perspective that can create clarity and relieve tension during times of difficulty and transition.
Through inquiry and personal observation, physical movement, breathwork and meditation, yoga practices can inspire physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. Many practitioners report improvements in their relationships with others as they learn how to be more understanding and accepting of their own inner lives. They also find improvements in cognition and memory, feeling sharper intellectually with better memory.
Dedicate three midday breaks to learning with Linda Lang, a certified yoga therapist, as she weaves together yogic practices and shares the keys for embracing change with wisdom and grace, strength, and resilience. The program also offers the chance to hear from local members of the medical community who endorse and use yoga as a course of prevention and as a healing partner in modern medicine, offering an understanding of why yoga is sometimes called “lifestyle medicine.”
