CAC Virtual Yoga/Relaxation Meet-Up – December 9, 6-7 PM EST

The CAC invites you to a special virtual meet-up on December 9, 6:00-7:00 PM EST. Lisa Perry, a professional yoga instructor, will guide attendees in several easy yoga exercises and a relaxation session. Lisa is generously donating her time. Participants should dress comfortably and have a carpet space or mat. They should also have a chair, couch or wall and extra blanket available to use during the session. The session will last 20 minutes.

After the session, we will have time for conversation. After a stressful 2020, let’s end the year with relaxation and conversation with our STC community. See you there!

Register here.
