Easy Yoga for Releasing Neck and Shoulder Tension

A short sample yoga class with WMYC instructor Nina Levenduski.  Followed by instructions in meditation and a group meditation practice.

“Due to the pace and stresses of modern life, most of us carry some tension in our neck and shoulders. The keys to better posture, body awareness, flexibility and stress management are found in the ancient practice of yoga,” explains Levenduski. Participants attending this program are guided through a series of gentle yoga stretches and movements to help release tension in the neck and shoulders. No prior yoga experience necessary!

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