By Shreya Rupesh

The WITI Wellbeing Center was created by Anna and Daniel Leighton shortly after the lockdown started, to allow people to take a break from their day to relax and rejuvenate.

4 PM PDT - Easy Yoga To Recover From Your Day with Lotem Porat
After sitting, zooming and using your mouse and keyboard all day, treat your body to this 1/2 hour, easy yoga class to transition into your evening or wind down your day.

"The Easy Yoga class was just what I needed to help me stretch and relax after a long day at work. Moves were easy and Lotem's voice was very calming. Thanks for offering the yoga series!"

5 PM PDT - Energy Management with Alyse Hart

Learn and use breath and gentle movement techniques to manage your energy during these times. These 15 minute sessions are formulated for strength, inner balance, vision and calm.

"Alyse is wonderful! Her sessions are short, so they are easy to fit into a busy day. My body always feels better after following her moves and my mood is always a little lighter too. Thanks Alyse!"

12 NOON PDT - Mindfulness and Movement with Fred Sugerman

Use guided and self-initiated movement to access information, inspiration and freedom in your body and mind!

"This event changed the whole outlook on my day! I joined not knowing what to expect, and immediately felt connected to Fred and the group even though I didn’t know anyone. I enjoyed the body movements and music, and ability to be myself with no judgements. Thanks for organizing this, and thanks to the host for being a wonderful person."

All classes are appropriate for all levels and free to all members!
