Memories Matter Online Yoga: Every Wednesday in April

Did you know doing yoga stretches your muscles and your mind? Research shows yoga and meditation can enhance brain function and reduce dementia risk.

With that encouraging knowledge, the UW Initiative to End Alzheimer’s (IEA) invites you to join fellow members of the Memorable Friends Recognition Society for a series of mindfully stimulating online yoga sessions.

Sara Tirner, an IEA board of visitor’s member and certified yoga instructor since 2002, will lead relaxing, 30-minute yoga sessions every Wednesday evening through the month of April that you can do from the comfort of home. After each session, enjoy a 15-minute “cooldown” Q & A.

April 7, 14, 21, and 28
6:30–7:15 p.m. CDT
Online via Zoom
Cost: Free
While sessions are free to attend, registration is required to receive the links to participate. Register online.

Additional Session Details

  • All skill levels are welcome — no prior experience necessary.
  • No special clothing or props are needed, but some portions of each session will require a sturdy chair on a non-skid surface.
  • You can register for one or more sessions.
