Bringing Yoga into Jeff’s School Visits
Instead of Yoga (Let’s be safe . . . ) Jeff calls it Mindfulness Movement Motivation!
Jeff is a 200-Hour Yoga Certified and Insured Yoga Teacher.
This 30-45 minute practice will take place before school with student leaders, sports captains, any staff that want to attend and anyone that is interested in personal performance and taking control of their mind, body, and heart.
During this practice led by Jeff we will start in a very quiet place seated on the floor (students will bring a towel or yoga mat from home).
Jeff will guide them through a Heart Opening Practice (stretching and breathing) of easy to follow postures. The end of the stretching and breathing will follow will three sequences of Sun Salutation A.
