Health and Wellness Series: Yoga
March 5 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pm$25
Dentistry is hard on the body and the mind. We spend too much of our day with one foot on the gas and one on the brake! We all need to learn how to take time to look after ourselves and control our thoughts, so they do not control us. Self-Care leads to the best care! This evening will be a session that is a return to the true roots of yoga and concentrates on the postures of Hatha Yoga, including teachings in pranayama (breathing) and meditation to improve both your physical and mental well-being and provide tools to handle the stresses of your busy life. Come and join the Women in Dentistry: Work. Life. Balance community for an evening dedicated to your physical and mental well-being. 100% of ticket sales will be donated to Women’s College Hospital.
