BDK America Presents Gentle Yoga and Meditation

The yoga postures (asanas) of this class will tone and stretch the body at a pace appropriate for you. The classes begin with breathing exercises to calm and balance the body and mind, followed by Sun Salutations and basic postures to build up your strength and flexibility and endurance. The class ends with 10 minutes' meditation on the mat or in a chair.

This yoga asana practice will help you sit comfortably for you meditation or simply for your relaxation. Meditation may be hard in terms of quieting our minds, but it should never be hard on the body.
