Lisa will kindly guide you and others in the class with a gentle seated practice focusing on breath, body, and mind: the yoga triangle. Lisa will intersperse some helpful ways to think about how yoga gives us the tools to manage our response to stress and help regulate our energy.
Lisa will start with Elements of Yoga–a gentle chair practice with a brief overview of yoga's history and core concepts. Learn how breath, body, and mind work together to offer strength, rest, and increased mind/body awareness. Then we will explore the essential tools of yoga practice: breath-work, movement, and meditation–we will experience how the body responds to different demands and the impact we can have on our health and peace of mind.
Lisa Carlson-Hill, LICSW, RYT 200, has worked as a medical social worker for over twenty years and has been teaching yoga since 2016. She believes the practice of yoga helps us to stay connected and curious about ourselves, our inner strength, and our resiliency to manage whatever life brings. Currently, she works in the setting of cardiac rehab, inspired by the resiliency and healing shared by her patients.
Owner, Host, & Director
Years ago, it was suggested to Joan that she might offer an art program, and she jumped at the chance of a lifetime. Bringing together all of her life's passions, the development and administration of Artful Journeys is an exhilarating process for Joan.
Joan was born and raised in the apple country of the Hudson River Valley in New York; her father was a gentle, very tolerant, educated land surveyor, and her mother was the efficient business administrator and home engineer. The youngest of four children, Joan was encouraged to pursue anything she wanted, but also to do her best. Sometimes that was very difficult, especially succeeding three very accomplished siblings.
