THIS EVENT HAS PASSED.

Breathing is an important tool that fuels every system in your body. Breathing not only oxygenates your blood it helps improve posture, enhances sleep, works your core muscles, and can be a form of meditation. In this workshop we’ll go over a number of breathing exercises, breathing patterns, and learn to sync breath patterns to gentle movements to help you feel stretched and revitalized.

Join Maggie Downie, founder of Personal Euphoria, a fitness and wellness company, where she has been helping her clients reduce pain since 2005. She is the author of Keep Moving: Take Steps to Relieve Pain & Improve Your Life.

Sponsored by Friends of the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library.
