September 25th, 2006 - The Art of Relaxation -
In today's world, few can claim to be "stress free". Stress follows
us everywhere. Even the technology that makes our lives more convenient,
such as cell phones and instant messaging, often creates more stress than it
relieves. Over-stressed people (and that's all of us) court headaches, insomnia,
irritability, memory problems, back and neck pain, immune system damage,
digestive distress, even life-threatening illness. Yet despite these clear
warning signs, most of us remain bound by our lifestyles and "too busy" to
change them.' (Dawn Groves, 2004) Join
us at the Earth Movement Studio Tuesday September 26th,
7:00-8:00pm to learn the Art of Relaxation. Explore simple,
user-friendly methods to get you on your way to a happier, healthier you.
