Easing Chronic Illness with Yoga and Meditation

A free public program with WMYC Yoga Instructor Nina Levenduski. 

“Chronic health problems such as Lyme Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalitis, autoimmune diseases and others, are affecting more and more people these days.  Often complex, difficult to diagnose, and challenging to manage, these types of health problems present a unique set of challenges and stresses to those living with them,” Ms. Levenduski comments.

Ms. Levenduski found her way to yoga and meditation classes as a way to help manage the demands of a full-time career, chronic health problems and other life changes.  The stillness, spirituality and deepening of the mind-body-spirit connection Ms. Levenduski has found in yoga and meditation inspired her to become an instructor.  Recently graduated from a 200-hour Yoga Alliance training program, she currently teaches gentle Hatha yoga at the Woodbury Meditation & Yoga Center (WMYC).

This complimentary program is to open everyone, and includes instruction and practice of meditation. WMYC is located at 122 West Side Road in Woodbury, CT. Everyone is welcome to come earlier, at 5:00 pm, for a complimentary sample yoga class with Nina.

WMYC is a not-for-profit educational institution offering meditation, yoga, tai chi/qigong and a variety of programs weekly, as well as complimentary Sunday evening events including meditation instruction.  WMYC welcomes individuals to try a class for free and see first-hand how yoga changes lives.
