Event description
Come de-stress at this beginner friendly yoga class hosted by Alissa Lesperance and Portland Sustainable Building Week.

About this Event

How are yoga and sustainability related? What could standing on your head and the fate of the planet possibly have in common? Can practicing yoga help to make the world a better place? It is well known that yoga is founded upon principles that promote awareness of one’s sense of connection, unity, and interdependence with all things. Do these principles convey an ecological consciousness through the practice of yoga? And perhaps more importantly, can yoga inspire conscious, peaceful, environmental stewardship for the betterment of society and the Earth?

Join the SBW team and Yoga Teacher Alissa Lesperance bright and early Tuesday morning to stretch our bodies and open our minds to understand the connectivity and purpose of yoga as it relates to environmental and emotional sustainability. The physical, emotional, and mental health that it brings to our lives, promotes well being to encourage environmental sustainability. Yoga provides us with a set of guidelines and tools to help us deal with ourselves and with the world around us. It provides a framework for managing our inner needs and desires, and when applied to communities and societies, can be a toolkit for sustainable living and global change.

Come de-stress at this beginner friendly yoga class. We will use breath work and a sequence of gentle poses to relax and unwind chronically tight areas of the body.

Please, provide your own mat and any props you enjoy using.

Please consider bringing a donation of $15.
