2:00-2:30pm Intro to P.L.A.Y
Teacher: Chris Eliades
Class description: P.L.A.Y. is a practice similar to a traditional yoga practice in the essence that there are many postures in sequence with a main focus of breath awareness, while in each pose as well as in transition from one posture to the next. In the practice of P.L.A.Y. however there is no expectation of physical performance and a deeper understanding that we are really here to have fun moving and breathing on your mat. This light hearted mindfulness practice is a great way to develop healthy habits on your mat that transition into how you live your life.

His most recent intrest is in Vedic Thai Yoga Massage Bodywork with the Vedic Conservatory. In the years of his practice Chris has come to understand yoga isn't something you can do, but yet yoga is a lifestyle. With P.L.A.Y. (Peace, Love, Awareness, Yoga) as his philosophy he encourages a light hearted lifestyle living and practicing with a smile!
