Presented during Myotonic's Friday Afternoon Webinar Series.
Join Ellen Shapiro for a gentle chair yoga session. We will do some breath awareness, stretching, and mindful movements. Yoga helps to calm us and build flexibility and strength. If you are experiencing anxiety during these unusual times, this might be a nice relaxing session for you! No yoga experience or equipment necessary!
