Yoga is a science that provides us with both a philosophical framework and practical tools and practices that result in stress reduction and more health, resiliency and happiness. The current Covid virus experience we are currently living globally has never been a better time to explore the practices of this ancient but powerful tradition. Join Diana Perez, physiotherapist and yoga therapist, for this 75 minute webinar that will give a brief overview of what yoga is, and guide you in some yoga practices that you can easily integrate into your own life to manage stress and achieve more resiliency and equanimity.

The tools and techniques we practice can also be easily integrated into your clinical practice with patients. There will be time in the webinar for questions and discussion.
