Back to school kids! Join us for our Sept 2016 ‘Wellness for Social Change’ Lunch & Learn – a FREE, BYO lunch event – This month featuring Hamad Shirazi.
The spine is a major part of our central nervous system. An unhealthy spine can interfere with this system and impact many other areas of our life. In this Lunch and Learn we will explore mindfulness in the workplace, and take a look at energetic anatomy (the chakra’s), postural deviations and breathing patterns.
