Take a Break, De-stress With Free Yoga

Posted on 11/30/21 by The AARP Bulletin

For an antidote to pandemic and seasonal stress, AARP Nevada offers Yoga Timeout Tuesdays. Chair yoga, free and geared to people 50-plus, is available on Zoom every Tuesday in December and January at 2 p.m. 

Certified yoga instructor Jahaira Farias guides participants in restorative meditations, breathing techniques and chair-based yoga movements. Farias, who is retired from the U.S. Marine Corps, has taught yoga to fellow veterans, first responders and others. 

The classes are for people of all experience levels. AARP Nevada encourages family caregivers in particular to experience the healing and calming powers of yoga as their end-of-year to-do lists fill up.

Participants  should consult with a physician before beginning an exercise program. Members and guests must preregister at aarp.cvent.com/aarpnevada calendar.
