Pelham Art Center is offering a series of “Healing Arts” workshops Sundays in July!
The workshop series is geared toward adults and ages 10+ to learn about & experience the many benefits of stretching, breathing exercises, sound, and meditation. All sessions are guided by Samantha Richardson: certified yoga instructor, health & wellness adviser, and owner of S&S Health and Wellness LLC.
Samantha takes a gentle and loving approach in her classes, making these workshops perfect for beginners or any level. By the end of each session, participants will see a noticeable reduction in stress and tension, a heightened sense of bodily awareness and freedom, and overall relaxation of body and mind. Workshops take place in the gallery Sundays 3:00-4:00pm and are $30/$27 members per session.
Participants can sign up for a singular session or register for the entire series by visiting Pelham Art Center’s website or by phone at (914) 738-2525 x. 111
