“Unwind your Mind” is a very basic introduction to the physiology of stress and how meditation can neutralize the impacts of stress on our body, mind and emotions.Karah Pino, East Asian Medicine and Certified QiGong Instructor
The class includes an introduction and practice of techniques from the four basic branches of meditation: visualization, sound, movement and mindfulness.
