Attention yoga aficionados, novices and nature lovers! Why not spend a relaxing evening getting in tune with the body and nature?
Join local speakers Emily Fuller Williams, Kim Scott Sowinski and Larry and Rosemary Knopf as they connect ancient hand gestures, yoga and music with the nature all around us at the "Mudras and Yoga and Cleveland Metroparks" event on Sunday, February 10 at 6:30 p.m. in Rocky River Nature Center.
Instructor Emily Fuller Williams will help participants experience a peaceful, calming effect through Mudras, simple ancient hand gestures that can shift moods from anxious to calm, and scattered to focused. Easy to learn, easy to use anywhere, anytime, mudras are an effective, no-cost practice to add to any health care routine.
