This is the final class that I teach for UC Berkeley faculty and staff during the spring semester, but I’ll be back in the fall! Come early and you’ll get to try aromatherapy oil to relieve stress. Please bring your own yoga mat as our supplies are limited. We’ll breathe, move, meditate, and relax.
Reminder: Bring your passport to have the last square stamped for the Yoga Passport Challenge prize. Get a bonus entry for filling out the evaluation that is emailed to attendees after class.
If you can’t attend my class, stop by Llamapalooza, details below!

Memorial Glade, UC Berkeley Campus
I have to admit, I love working at the University of California Berkeley, in part because of the fun events like this! The llamas are brought to campus each semester to help students de-stress during finals. They’re gentle, majestic creatures that are well cared for by their shepherd and student volunteer handlers. It’s really fun to see them walk around the lawn with students taking llama-selfies. This is for the benefit of students, but it is open to anyone on campus. If you want to enjoy a fun Berkeley day, get some takeout lunch and have a picnic on the steps of the library or in the shade of the trees on the east up-slope of the lawn. Read more about it on the Facebook event.
