MOVEMENT AND MEDITATION
Movement and Meditation+ At Home
Join Lloyd Hawthorn for this movement class rooted in the mindfulness and intentions of yoga
designed for the Adaptive community and people of all physical abilities. Lloyd grew up in and
around the coastal areas of the beautiful South Pacific island nation of New Zealand.
He is passionate about connecting with his students, spreading his love for yoga and
helping others in their journey by sharing his journey.
You and he will find fun and challenging ways to move our bodies through familiar and not so
familiar yoga poses. You will be encouraged to try new things, that’s how we grow and learn.
Each class will finish with a relaxing and releasing guided meditation.
Please bring whatever you need to make your practice more comfortable - a chair, straps
(belt or towel), blocks (stack of books), bolsters (pillows, cushions, blankets).
BSONE and BH-BIMS have partnered with Spaulding Adaptive Sports Centers to continue to host
this group and open it to a larger community!
Spaulding Adaptive Sports Centers (SASC) are open to all individuals in the community who are living with disabilities. Children and adults participate in a variety of sports and recreation events alongside adaptive sports professionals and Spaulding therapists. This provides the perfect environment to try new sports or get back to one you have always enjoyed.
Every Tuesday, from 4:00-5:00 PM this class is offered through Zoom. The link to register for this
class and other activities can be found on the Spaulding Adaptive Sports Website here:
