Do the holidays leave you feeling more jangle-y than jingle-y? If so, you’re not alone. While the next few weeks can be some of our lives’ most joyful, the desire to meet the season’s expectations and demands can also be overwhelming and stressful.

Centuries of practice have shown that yoga is an effective tool in decreasing the physical and mental effects of stress. Lethargy, insomnia, anxiety, achiness, and grumpiness (‘grinch’-iness) are just a few of the ways stress can manifest. Treat yourself, or someone you’d love to see journey through life’s hectic moments a little more easily, to an early holiday gift.

These workshops are designed for all ages and all abilities; participants are asked to wear comfortable clothes. To learn more or register for one (or both) of these workshops, Click here to download the registration forms and return to the UM Museum.
