"The Healer Within: Using Breath and Light Movement to Unite the Body, Mind and Spirit"
New Canaan Yoga Teacher Martha Risom Shares "The Healer Within: Using Breath and Light Movement to Unite the Body, Mind and Spirit"
Martha Risom has been practicing yoga for twenty years and still finds something new and magical every time she steps on her mat. She is a Kaia Yoga registered teacher and New Canaan resident. Martha attributes this magic to the energy releasing asanas and breathing techniques that are the trademark of her teaching. Yoga is about creating strength and power for the mind, body and whole being, through conditioning that promotes balance, flexibility and mobility. Yoga is an important part of being a well-rounded athlete and human being. It produces long, lean muscles and detoxifies and massages the body, while everyday stresses are replaced with a feeling of wellbeing. She will be at theLibrary on February 12 at 10:00 AM in the Adrian Lamb Room. Martha will guide the class through a seventy five minute session designed to promote healing. The class will explore the mind and body connection using yoga breath work, meditation techniques and light movement. She suggests attendees bring a mat, blanket and water bottle and wear comfortable clothes for movement. It will be a wonderful opportunity to nurture your body, awaken your inner healer and ignite your spirit. Please register for this class online at newcanaanlibrary.org
