About the Webinar Course

This webinar course has been previously recorded.  

When today’s world feels stressful and uncertain, the ancient practice of yoga offers tried-and-true techniques for focusing the mind, empowering the body, and soothing the spirit. During this webinar course, longtime yoga teacher Becky Vollmer, Experienced-Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) 500, will explain how yoga – including movement, breathwork, mindfulness, and meditation – can help improve flexibility and strength in the muscles, improve both mobility and stability in the joints, and engage the body’s parasympathetic nervous system to reduce physical and mental stress. You’ll learn simple breathing, stretching, strengthening, and mindfulness practices that can be done practically anywhere – whether on the job, in the car, or at home. No experience, no stretchy pants, and no yoga mat required!

Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the webinar course, the learner will be able to:
  • Self-scan and identify three joints and muscle groups that contribute to tightness, stress and discomfort in his or her body.
  • Perform three yoga techniques to help alleviate physical discomfort or mental stress, which can be done at work or at home.
