STRETCH & RELEASE -WHERE YOGA & ACUPUNCTURE INTERSECT
March 9th
7:30-9pm Woburn
Join Jay Guanci and Karen Cullen for this healing workshop! Do you love yoga or acupuncture and want to see how they mix? Have you been doing one and wondering what the other has to offer?
The word yoga means union. It’s the joining together of breath, body and mind – mind, body and spirit. This unique class will begin with centering followed by the exploration of the breath through multiple asanas (yoga poses) in an intelligent, gentle, therapeutic flow. This program will stretch and soothe every space in the physical body. Class will conclude with an extended savasana (resting pose) guided meditation and a Yoga Nidra.
Afterwards a community style acupuncture treatment on your mat is included for each of the participants.
Simple treatment options will include a choice of:
• Four Gates Treatment – Helps with calming and    quieting the mind, strengthening and nourishing all the    muscles and tendons.
• Head Over Heels – Can treat headache or plantar    fasciitis.
• Back In Action Treatment – Targeting the spinal column   and muscles of the back and neck.
We look forward to guiding you through the vast inner landscape of your being during this relaxing yet refreshing experience.
