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).

 

If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to Audrey Wolfe: awolfe2@partners.org
