Breathe, Balance, and Bend; three B’s for a better March. Breathe slowly and deeply while closing your eyes and listen to your breath as you inhale and exhale. Deep breaths are best. Restore balance in your life by disconnecting with an extended digital detox or changing how and what you eat. Bend and stretch your body and your mind, you’ll feel great and you might be surprised how much clearer you think. These classes from our guest presenters help you explore the three B’s in March.
